I have been honored with your favors of the 4th, 5th, and 7th instants—My desire of making myself fully acquainted with the important subject of the last has prevented my answering it before this time. The principle on which you proceeded, of estimating the number of Rations, by the full compliment of the Continental Battalions and Corps, was certainly the only true one, and I find that your...
Inclosed is a list of promotions due upon the resignation of Colo. procter and an account of Vacancies in the 2nd and 3d Regiments of Artillery. These promotions are agreeable to the mode of preferment established previous to the Resolve of the 25th of May. You will oblige me by having the Commissions immediately made out and all but Lt Colo. Carringtons forwarded here. I have the honor to be...
I am honored with yours of the 1st instant inclosing Colo. Brodheads representation of the State of Affairs to the Westward, which I make no doubt are in much the same situation as those in every other quarter. If the requisitions of Men and supplies are not in any tolerable degree complied with by the States it is impossible for me to furnish Garrisons for the Frontier posts and support them....
I was yesterday honored with your favor of the 25th ulto. Your first and second reasons for removing the Convention troops from their present places of confinement are unobjectionable; but I think they will be equally safe in Pennsylvania as they would be in Massachusetts, and, all circumstances considered, I am opinion that they had best be halted for the present in that State. The Board...
Inclosed are the Copies of the letters and papers from the Marquis de la Fayette transmitted in yours of the 26th. I have recd Mr Carletons letter of the 22d inclosing one from Capt. swan on the subject of what he conceives an injury respecting his Rank. As he states no particulars, I do not know upon what he founds his claim to the Majority of the 1st Regt—But of this I am certain, that the...
I have been honored with your favors of the 13th 14th. and 17th. instants. My late absence from the Army prevented my acknowledging them sooner. If the Uniforms which were fixed upon for the troops of the States of North and South Carolina have not been ordered from Europe, I do not see that any inconvenience can attend the proposed alterations. I think, however, the Lace ought to be dispensed...
I have been honored with your favors of the 2d and 8th Inst. The first did not reach me till yesterday. I have immediately made application to Sir Henry Clinton for permission to send Tobacco to Charles Town, but I apprehend it will not be granted, as I think a request of a similar nature has been heretofore refused. Inclosed you have some additions to the arrangements of the Penna line—They...
I have been honored with your favors of the 30th April and 1st Instant. After a conference with Mr Cornel I ordered as much Cloathing as could possibly be shared from hence to be immediately forwarded to the southward with one thousand Muskets and one thousand Cartouch Boxes which appeared as many as could be sent from hence upon a comparison of our own probable wants with our stock on hand....
Your favr of the 21st ulto reached me on the 28th—Should there be no Naval Officer of Capt. Willings Rank who has a prior right of exchange, I shall be very glad to see his effected, as he has been peculiarly severely treated by the enemy, but if Lt Colo. Rogers is a continental prisoner of War I cannot consistently permit him to be exchanged for Capt. Willing solely, without making a...
I received a representation, see General Knox’s letter of 23d of April of which the inclosed is a Copy, from General Knox, upon his being informed that the Board had directed the Military Stores at Fishkill to be delivered over to the Dy Qr Mr—and Mr Rud’dock and his Assistants to be dismissed—General Knox has so fully pointed out the utility and indeed necessity of keeping up such a post as...
