Nothing Remarkable has occurred in this neighbourhood since You left us. I think we omitted, My lord, at the beginning of Our Address, you will Please to Observe before you Send it off, and likewise Write to the governor and Some of the Council to charge Mr Ludwel to support & inforce it. I heard once from the Branch Since, but expect you have all the reports from that Quarter before this...
I had just finish’d my Letter of this date when Capt. Stewart deliver’d me Yours of the 18th Inst. The Men I am in great hopes will answer Your Expectations They Shoot extreamly well, but are much harass’d at present with the Cattle—I make the Butchers, Cutters, Salters, & Coopers wait on McLean for Orders every morning—and a Return is made to me every night of what work is done. To keep...
Inclosd is a Return of the Strength of the Six Companies at this Place. I wish you would order by the first Opportunity Breech-Clouts for the men; Send the Paymaster and the Store Accounts, in order the Officers of Companies might have time to Settle those matters before the Genl Arrives, when Some of us will be Orderd to pass the mountains, & perhaps have no Opportunity of Joining again,...
I wrote yesterday, intended by Capt. Bosomworth but was out when he sett off. Nothing new Since, only two men have deserted Viz. John Clandinnon a damnable tall fellow & Adam Clandinnon his brother inlisted lately by Lt Charles Smith—I have sent Advertisements through pennsylvania, & have trusted to the Officers of their Companies to send you by this Opportunity. I have thirteen of Capt....

I wrote him afterwards that Captain Trent had promis’d to procure...
Inclosd you have the montly Return—George Hedgeman resigned last month. Captain Gist is the only Officer who, as [I] hear, has had good Success in recruiting—I have sent him, at his Earnest Request, £100 to pay off Some Expences on the Recruits left in Maryland. The Sickness continues among the men, and I have a thought of fiting up the New Store for an hospital, but wants your Orders how to...
There is nothing new here—By last accounts the General was indisposd & had not left Carlisle, on Sunday. By all reports, there has been a great miscarriage at an Enemy’s post calld the Saw-Mill within two miles of Ticonderogo—We have no distinct account of the affair, nor is it known here, who Commanded the Attack; It is imagind that the Advanced Party, or rather First Division, made too great...
I suppose Majr Lewis informed You that the Valley at the mouth of Pattersons Creek did not extend above 800 yards from hill to hill. I went up to Ashby’s and Saw Mr Boyd pay the men—He sold us some Liquor for our Detachmt as the weather was Cold, and we found that three months pay was due to some of his Men whilst others were paid off to the 4th inst. I really do not like the mouth of the...
The Commissary has arrived, and I suppose You will learn a State of his Affairs by his Letter. I was as Active as I could be, in hurrying up Salt. I would have been at Fort-Cumberland two days ago, but have been employd in the disagreeable Service of Apprehending Deserters—Four, out of a gang of 20 Banditti, all with Arms and ammunition, are apprehended, We are in hot pursuit of the rest,...
