Your favour of the 15th by Count Kolkowski, I received a few days since—If I have a right idea of your situation at Rosecrantz it will fulfil the object intended.

I have been favoured with your Letter of the 15 Inst. by Monsr Segond. I think it will be proper for you to join the Army with your Corps, as there yet remain more than Two months in which the Enemy may operate in the Field; However, you are not to proceed with it till you receive orders from Congress or the Board of War for the purpose. If Congress or the Board of War direct you to join the...
Captn Welpper of the invalid corps has lodged a complaint of a very serious nature against the conduct of some of the soldiers under your command He informs me that they have abused a sergeant of a guard and a prisoner under his care—countenanced by a Mr Copetch —I desire that this mutinous disposition may be immediately inquired into—and if as represented, properly punished, and measures...
I am exceedingly concerned to learn that you are acting contrarily both to a positive Resolve of Congress and my express orders, in engaging British prisoners for your Legionary Corps—When Congress refered you to me on the subject of its composition, to facilitate your raising it I gave you leave to enlist one third deserters in the foot, and was induced to do even that from your assuring me...
