Yours of the 3d Instt has been duly received. Your business to Boston seems to have been of a material and necessary nature, and I am happy to hear you were likely to get it accomodated. As the present time is peculiarly interesting, and requires the attention and exertion of every person in the line of duty assigned him, I must request your constant attendance and closest application & care...
Your favour of the 4th Instant by Capt. De Goy was handed me the 11th. I was then on my march for this place, which, together with other intervening circumstances, has put it out of my power before to consider your observations, and form a determination concerning them. You seem to have misunderstood the purport of what I said in my last with respect, to the heavy pieces that came in the...
I last Night received your Favor of the 9th Inst. I wrote to you Yesterday by Express, informing you of what I had done towards furnishing you with such Supplies as are in my power to give and the Obstacles that at present lie in the Way of granting you others that your Situation demands—I have in Addition to that sent, by Express, to peek’s Kill to order on thence to you as speedily as...
Pompton Plains [ New Jersey ] July 13, 1777. Discusses disposal of the artillery imported on Amphitrite. Says that Du Coudray is wrong in assuming that Mauduit du Plessis is aide-de-camp to Brigadier General Henry Knox.

I have this moment receiv’d your Favor of the 11th Inst. by Mr Conoly, & from your recommendation have not the least Objection that he should be appointed to one of the Lieutenancies you mention; provided it can be done without any just cause of offence to the other Officers of that Corps—If these Commissions have ever been granted, & the Officers by Resignation or otherwise quit the Regiment,...
6General Orders, 13 July 1777 (Washington Papers)
The Commander in Chief approves the following sentences of a General Court Martial held the 7th, 8th and 9th instant, whereof Col. Walter Stewart was President, and orders, that they be put in execution forthwith—vizt: Lieut. Cummings of the 1st Virginia regiment charged with “Messing with common soldiers, and speaking disrespectful words of the commanding officer of the regiment, and with...
Yours of the 30th ulto found me at this place. Upon the Enemy’s quitting Jersey and embarking, there was the strongest presumption to think, that this sudden alteration of their original move towards Philadelphia could only be owing to an intent to co-operate with Genl Burgoyne and the Northern Army. It was therefore determined to move this army up towards Peekskill to be ready to act as...
I have been favoured with yours of the 11th. Inst. with its Inclosures. I had received a Letter from Genl Schuyler nearly of the same purport of his to the Council of Safety of New York. The more Accounts we get—the more astonnishing does the evacuation of the posts on the Lakes appear. What can have become of Genl St Clair & the Army? I wish we may have heard the worst. I have nothing in...
Pompton Plains [ New Jersey ] July 13, 1777. Discusses supplies sent to Schuyler. Is astonished that there has been no word from Major General Arthur St. Clair. Df , in writing of H, George Washington Papers, Library of Congress.
