Ensign Crawford has referred a dispute to me concerning his rank in the Army. I must determine in his favour: and allow their officers to rank by the dates and dignity of their Commissions.

Letter not found: to Robert Stewart, 22 June 1756. On 23 June 1756 Stewart wrote to GW: “I just recd yours of yesterday.”
I received yours of the 23d instant —and have directed the Commissary to send you by the first waggon, the Things you wrote for; except the cartridge-paper, which we have not: you must do the best you can without it. Let the men all get Horns and Pouches. By the first conveyance you will receive six axes, eight blankets, three bayonets, and twelve cartouch-boxes. You must order Captain Bell...
