I received yours of the 20 Instt and in answer thereto request you to draw out of your Regiment all the Armourers in It and set them immediately to work—they will receive the same pay as the Armourers here do under the like circumstances—you must endeavour to engage the one you mention on the same Terms that are given here, but If you can not do better, you will continue him on those contained...
Be pleased to order the Regimental Pay Master and Cloathier of Colo. Weissenfelds Regt to repair to New Burgh for a supply of Cloathing for the Regiment. If it does not reach them before they march from Schenectady to Fort Schuyler, it may follow them up. I have directed the Cloathier to give them as full a supply as our Store will admit, as they will be at a distance, and will not have...
I have received Yours of the 5th. I hope by this time matters of supply are in better train in your quarter, and that they will continue with some regularity thro’ the Winter. A comfortable supply of Cloathing will be sent up to the Line in a few days. Wiesenfeld’s Regt drew their full proportion before they marched. Upon a representation made to me by Mr Shephard the Armourer at Albany, I...
Inclosed is a letter to Major Posey, which I must request you will forward to him. It is unsealed, & you will find that I have directed him to repair to this place, & join his Regt where his services are much wanted. As withdrawing the Major from the Corps may render it less serviceable than it has been, I could wish you if its services can be dispensed with, to order the detachments that...
In consequence of repeated intelligence from the Northward, that the Enemy were assembled in force to make an incursion on our frontier, I odered Col. Hazen’s Regt and the six Companies of Col. Van Schaick’s to Albany: since which I am informed that the number of the Enemy was inconsiderable, and that those Troops, are supposed, to have been drawn together near the frontier, for the purpose of...
In a circular letter of the 22d of Jany—in your absence—I transmitted the Inspectors reports of december to the Commandant of your Brigade delineating several defects and abuses there pointed out and exhorting to effectual measures for remedying them. This letter I presume you have since your return received; if not you will be pleased immediately to call for it, and have the objects contained...
The Honourable the Congress have decided the affair of rank between Colonels Van Courtlandt—Gansevoort & Dubois upon their respective Memorials, against Colonel Dubois, as you will perceive by the inclosed Extract from General Orders, which contains their Resolution upon the occasion.

I have received your two favours of the 28th of May and 6th of June —I hope before this you will have received instructions from General Sullivan, respecting the precise line of conduct you are to observe. Whether your destination shall be up the Mohock River or to form a junction in the first instance with the main body at the Head of Susquehannah, is a point I have left to him to decide and...
You are to repair to Fort Montgomery, and take upon you the Commd of the Posts in the Highlands. use every means in your power to provide your Regiment with Arms fit for Service—one step towards which, endeavour to Imploy an Armourer or two, or more, as the case may require. Use every possible diligence in forwarding the Works at Forts Montgomery & Constitution, agreeable to late direction’s...
I informed You yesterday morning, that I had received certain advices that a body of the Enemy from Canada, computed at about Five Hundred under Sir John Johnson had penetrated into the State of New York, by way of the Mohawk river, as far as Johns Town, and seemed as if they were about to take post there, and that there were other accounts received through prisoners who had escaped from...
With the Detachment under your command, which is to comprehend the Corps now advanced with Colo. Morgan, you are to move towards Kings Bridge & the Enemys lines thereabouts. The principal objects in view are, to cover the Engineers & Surveyors, while they reconnoitre & as far as time will permit, survey the Ground & roads in your rear, & in front of this Camp—to countenance and encourage that...
I have recd your favs. of the 18th and 28th Decemr and 2d instant with their inclosures. I approve of your innoculating the Soldiers of your Brigade upon the first appearance of the small pox among them, and I would not have you confine that salutary operation to them alone, but carry it thro’ any of the other Corps which may not have had the disorder. When I return to Camp I shall direct that...
I have been favd with yours of the 8th instant. I have furnished General Knox with the Return of deficiencies of Military Stores to the Northward, and he will send up a supply. In examining the Regimental Arrangements which you have transmitted to me, I observe that the dates of some Officers Commissions differ very much from those in the arrangement made by the Committee at White plains, and...
