Your several Favours & Commands of the 18th 19th & 20th reached me this Evening—Orders are gone to Genl Nixons Brigade to proceed to the Continental Village —I shall observe your Directions as to Deserters from the Convention Troops.

I have just recd Your Excellencys Order of Yesterday, from the last situation of the Division it was most convenient for Nixon’s Brigade, who lay in Woodbury, to march by the new Bridge through Newtown, where they halted last Night —I halted the Connecticut Brigades about three Miles North of this Town & came in myself to find a suitable Place for the Whole—the best position, on account of...
I understand by Col. Meigs that it is expected at Head Quarters that the Connecticut Troops will be supplied with Cloathing by Major Biggelo the Dep.

I wish, if it is agreeable to your Excellency, that a Field Officer from the Brigade with Your...

Since the Date of your Letter, the Governor & Council have resolved forthwith to make a Draft of Men to fill up the continintal Battalions, upon which I think my Stay here very necessary & shall therefore presume it to be your Pleasure untill further...
In Obedience to your Excellencie’s Order of the 12th March I send a Return of my Regiment, am sorry it rises no higher, I could go out of Service with more Cheerfullness than I cam into it or make any other Sacrafice to accelerate this important Business—Major Sill will march with a Division of my Regiment as soon as they are able—the Men are but just leaving the Hospital—many of them had the...
