I have received your two favors of Yesterday respecting your Brother, who you suppose, wishes to become an Inhabitant of the united States.

I have received your Letter of the 3d instant.

Colonel Armand in a Letter of the 3d June last inform’d me that his Cavalry is compleat to within five Men of his established number—but that Sixty Horses are still wanting—I imagine there is very little probability that our means will admit of furnishing him any more Horses, and as his Corps may be of essential service in the So. Army—I will be obliged to you to transmit him Orders to March...
I was informed by Genll Paterson that the place assigned by Majr Genll Knox & others for erecting the Magazine, was in your opinion very unfit for the purpose; if this is the case, I wish you to point out some other place on West Point, and give your reasons in writing as soon as possible, why you prefer it to the place first mentioned. I am sir Your Most Obedt Servant Privately owned.
I have received your two Letters of the 9th & 21st of July—the first of which reached me but last Evening by the Hand of M r Ten Eyck.

In my last Letter of the 7th of July, in which I acknowledged your several favors of the 22d of April & 19th of May, I mentioned my expectation of soon meeting the Count de Rochambeau in Philadelphia, and my intention of writing you from that place in case any thing of moment should turn up in the mean while—But as our hopes, that public Dispatches would have arrived from France before our...
