The State of our provisions to the northward during our late alarms there detaind me much longer in that Quarter than I expected, I now however think I may venture to offer on to your Excellency, except in the article of beef, for which we must depend on other States, there is every probability they will during the course of the winter, be tolerably supplyd; these alarms having in many...
