Since my letter to you covering the nomination of the Staff Officers of my Regt. and the Bond required of the Pay Master, I have received from the Treasury Department, money for recruiting Service, and an advance of four Mons. pay to the Officers; from the same Office, I received a blank Bond to be executed by the Pay Master, which differs in form with the One I inclosed to you; inasmuch as...
Having now the advantage of a short acquaintance with the Officers of my Regimt.; and an opportunity of obtaining full information of their Characters, am better prepared to make the arrangement of their rank as was proposed by you in a former letter. That we should be perfectly correct, cannot be expected but I am persuaded we are sufficiently so to justify the arrangement as is here...
Your last letter to me, contained information of the Secretary of War’s determination to appoint only two Cadets to a Regiment, and requested me to Select out of the number that had been recommended, two proper characters for my Regiment; In my Answer to that letter, I named Mr Simmons & Mr Beale as proper Characters; A few hours before I wrote that letter, I received information, that which I...
Richmond [ Virginia ] September 19, 1799 . “… Our recruiting instructions forbids recruiting Mulatto’s. As Batmen are allowed to officers, may not recruits of that description be taken for that purpose alone? They are better Calculated than the White natives of this Country for menial Service. Will an Officer who shall take a Servant with him, be intitled to draw rations for him? If this...
I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letters of the 26th. & 30th of Septr. Agreeably to your instructions, I have ordered the recruits of my Regiment, to the Battalion Stations, except Capt. Caldwells, at Wheeling, which are too distant. I have drawn but one Officer from each Sub-Station, leaving the others, with a few Men and the hired Music, to prosecute the recruiting...
Richmond [ Virginia ] October 4, 1799 . “A few days before my arival at this place, some of the Troops of the Regimt. of Artillerists & Engineers, of Capt. Eddins’s Company, stationed at this place, were guilty of a most violent and flagrant breach of Civil Authority; the Circumstances were these; One of their new recruits was discovered to be a fugitive from justice, he had been committed to...
Richmond [ Virginia ] August 17, 1799 . “Yours of the 10 Ultimo notifying the appointments of the Medical Staff and the Com: officers to fill vacancies within my Regiment was received in proper time. The manner in which the vacancies were filled was unexpected to me, as well as to those who received the appointments; They all excepted to have been the junior officers of the regiment, and that...
I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your Private & Confidential letter of the 20th Ulto., on the Subject of naming proper characters from the grades of Majors, Captains & Lieutenants, for the department of the Inspectorship, or Quarter Master. This is a task as delicate as it is difficult; and it is with diffidence that I shall enter on it, least I should recommend a character that...
I am impatient to know what disposition is to be made this Winter, of the Recruits of my Regiment; I have before Written to you, and to the Secretary of War on the Subject, and am in hopes that the next post will furnish the information. Should it be determined on to Hut the Troops in some Convenient Woods, which to me seems the most eligible plan, we wall require some of those articles that...
Colo. Parkers complaint to you of my having fixed a recruiting Station within his circle, is a circumstance so unexpected, that I cannot help expressing concern on the occasion: I regret very much his disposition to swell into importance, a circumstance quite trivial in its nature; such conduct is only calculated to disturb the harmony of the military, which ought, if possible, to be preserved...
