I have this day received your letter of the 5th. Instant, and shall immediately send to the different Contractors, to comply with its contents. I find a difficulty subsisting, in my mind of the arrangement of my Battalion, to the different Garrisons, which Major Tousard and myself sent you from Newport; a nother Copy of which, I enclose you: If Captain Decius Wadsworth’s Company, is to...
I hope you arrived well & that the Sun & fatigue did not encrease the bile —Dr Thornton has applied to Mr Carroll who will not take less than 15d. or 15 Cents—which in truth the Lot is worth —A Gentleman from Baltimore has been with me to day for a Lot to build upon, & the Stenographer (or short hand writer) to Congress is going to build on one of my Lots in the small Square above my stable &...
I am fully satisfied my dear Hamilton from what you say, that you had no intention to insinuate in the general order, any thing that could affect my character in the eye of the public or army, and I am no longer uneasy. Upon the other point, let me assure you, that the military rule of correspondence, which I have departed from, in some instances, as relative to General Wilkinson, did not take...
I inclose for your information, press copy of a letter from me, to Lieut. Colonel Smith, commanding the 12th. United State’s regiment, relative to a demand made by him, for payment to the officers of his regiment, of the value of wood, stated not to have been drawn by them; and allowed by the regulations of the 26th. day of December 1797. I am Sir with great respect your obedt hble servant (...
I have just recd your letter of August 3d respecting Mr. Gerry’s accounts; and with it an extract of his letter to you of July 24th, & nothing else: the numbers 1. 2. 3. 4. & 5, and a paper of extracts of letters, which you mention as also inclosed were omitted; which doubtless your Secretary will discover, and forward them by the next mail. I have recd. at the same time your two letters of...
Your Letter of yesterday’s date relative to Lt. Hoffman, was delivered to me this morning, my feelings were very sensibly effected, when Lieut Livingston made a verbal communication to me of Lt. Hoffmans conduct the preceeding night—I requested him to consider the case maturely and if he had charges of that serious nature against Lt. Hoffman they should be exhibited on paper, with his...
The Delay which my last Letter experienced in reaching you, may be partly accounted for, by sending my Brothers Letter (which accompanied mine) under cover to Mr Wolcott in Phila. for his & Colo. Pickerings observation —what further delay it may have met with, I cannot tell; I only know, that in too many instances, there is not that punctual attention to Duty in our Post Offices, which the...

10. Morning perfectly clear. Wind from So. Wt. and Mer. at 75—at highest 87—and at Night 74. In the afternoon heavy clouds & fine rains all around us but none fell here.
Daily expectation of Genl Washington’s arrival, must be received as my apology for not having given your obliging favour of the 25th of June, an earlier acknowledgment. He did not (on account of the indisposition of his Son, in North Carolina) reach this place until the 6th instant. He left us yesterday, with the young Gentleman; both in good health, and Spirits. Permit me to offer you my best...
