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
