To the General Officers of the Army. assembled in Council at the New Building April 17th 1783 Gentlemen It is well known to you that the first intimations of a general Peace have been given to us some time past by a casual conveyance, and published accordingly to the Army, and that the same intelligence has since been received by Sir Guy Carleton from the British Court, in consequence of...
The Commander in Chief States to the General Officers— That—From the best Information he has been able to obtain, the regular force of the Enemy in N. York, at this Time , including their established provincial Corps, amounts at least to 9,000 Men. That—The City Militia, volunteer Companies, Rangers and some other small Corps in the Town, amounted by a Report made to the Secretary of State in...
To the General Officers of the Army Assembled at Head Quarters, Newburgh, 24th June 1783. Gentlemen I am to request your opinions of the three following Questions. viz. 1st—Whether all the measures which were proper for giving satisfaction to Brigadr General Hazen and a number of the Officers of his Corps, respecting Major Reid, have been persued, or not? 2dly—In case they have not, what...
I hoped after the pains you had taken to arrange the Massachusetts line —that neither of us would be troubled farther upon the subject. In this however I have been disappointed. When I was about to transmit the arrangement to Congress—the inclosed memorial from sundry Officers was presented me by Col. Bayley. It seems from their state, that Mr Banister was originally appointed Paymaster to...
By the Contents of Sir Guy Carletons Letter which came inclosed in yours of this Day, I find it is unnecessary for you to proceed to Phillips’s House—Sir Guy being disappointed in not obtaing Passports for M. Chief Justice Smyth to come out, he will not, he says, trouble an Officer of your Rank to be the Bearer of a Bundle of papers only—but adds that they shall be sent out in the ordinary...
Letter not found: to Maj. Gen. William Heath, 17 Aug. 1776. Heath’s letter to GW of this date is docketed in Joseph Reed’s writing: “Major Genl Heath Kingsbridge Aug. 17 1776 Answerd do.”
I am this day favor’d with yours of the 27th & 29th of May. I am surprised at the accounts you give me of the want of Cloathing for the Troops of Massachusetts. I took it for granted that they had been sent forward when it was intended that all your Troops shou’d go the Northward, & that they wou’d meet them at Peekskill. My reason for this was, that the Cloathier General repeatedly assured me...
I have recd your favors of the 25th and 28th ulto. The State of Rhode Island were called upon for, a considerable monthly supply of Forage, and as they acceded to the requisition, I should have hoped you would have obtained a sufficiency for the small continental force under your command, without any difficulty. An application to the state, founded on the above, is the best measure I can...
Your two favors of Yesterday have been received. The General just going to Wapping Creek, directs me to reply, that it is his Desire that, upon the Arrival of Colo. Badlam, you should immediately order him in Arrest, producing such Charges against him as you find can be properly supported—for which purpose it may be well perhaps to examine the Recruits themselves. The Baron Steuben will be...
I have recd your favors of the 18th and 21st. When the Army gets together and settled in Winter Quarters, I intend to make some general Regulations respecting the troops receiving Flour or Bread, in the mean time, they may continue to dress in the manner they have been accustomed to do. You will be pleased to order the New York line to the same position which that of New Hampshire has taken,...
