Dear Sir

I have written to General Schuyler to have all the Boats, Oars & Plank which he has been able to procure for the Public instantly sent to West Point & mentioned that you would furnish men for the purpose—I have now to request that you will order exactly a sufficient number of men, properly officered from the 2nd New York Regt to bring these Boats immediately down the River; the Boats will be delivered to the Orders of Major Genl McDougall. I am &c.
