On the 15th of April I received your Letter of the 31st of March, accompanied by Captain Chace’s and two for Lord Howe. When the Letters came to hand Lord Howe was not at Philadelphia—nor did I hear of his arrival for some time after. This and the intervention of other circumstances prevented me sending the Letters addressed to him, and my intercession in favour of Mr Chase, as early as I...
Inclosed you will receive a Copy of a Letter from General Varnum to me, upon the means which might be adopted for completing the Rhode Island Troops to their full proportion in the Continental Army—I have nothing to say in addition to what I wrote the 29th of last month on this important subject, but to desire that you will give the Officers employed in this business all the assistance in your...
By Lieutt Colo. Barton I was honored with your Favor of the 5th Ulto with it’s Inclosure. The spirit and disposition of this Gentleman for enterprize and of the Officers concerned with him in capturing Genl Prescot, give them a ⟨hi⟩gh claim to the thanks and esteem of ⟨their⟩ Country. Congress, persuaded of this, ⟨promoted Mr Ba⟩rton on the 24th Instant to the ⟨Rank and pay of a⟩ Colonel in...
I make no doubt but before this, you will have heard, that the Enemy have evacuated Jersey. This information, I should have done myself the pleasure of transmitting you by the first Opportunity after the Event, had not my attention been employed in making a New disposition of the Army, and had I apprehended it materially interesting, that it should come immediately from myself. When Genl Howe...
I have the honor of yours of the 14th instant. I shall make it my particular Business to demand Capt. Chase’s Son in Exchange for Mr Hutchinson or Govr Shirley’s Son, as he is certainly justly intitled to it. I thank you for the enquiry you have made after Thomas Rogerson. I am pleased to hear that your General Assembly are determined to take such methods as shall seem to them most effectual...
I am honoured with yours of the 18th of last Month. The late ample arrivals of Arms at Philada and at portsmouth, added to those which we before had, puts us out of all further uneasiness on account of that necessary Article. The Eleven hundred and Seventy six stand which you recd from the continental Agent at Boston, will be very near the number wanted for your two continental Battalions when...
Letter not found: to Nicholas Cooke, 14 Mar. 1777. When writing to GW on 14 April , Cooke says that “Your Excellency’s Favors of the 14th ult. and of the 3d instant are now before me,” and in another letter to GW of 31 Mar. 1778 Cooke writes: “Your Excellency wrote me on the 14th of March 1777 that General Howe had applied to you for the Discharge of Mr Hutchinson who was One of the Council...
I was yesterday honoured with your Letter of the 9th Ulto. The Extracts you have been pleased to favour me with, shew, that the Two Regiments of foot & that of Artillery were established on a plan more extensive & generous, than that of mere, local defence, and the Objections formerly made are almost wholly done away, by the Order permitting the Men to be enlisted into the Continental...
I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your favour of the 18th Ulto by M. Green. As yet the Letter by you referred to, as explaining the Motives by which the General Assembly of your State were governed in ordering the Brigade to be raised for 15 Months, & the plan upon which they are inlisted, has not reached me. During the last Campain, the greatest part of the Army were at a...
The deplorable and melancholy situation, to which One of our Armies was reduced last Campaign by the Small pox & the certainty, that no precautions can prevent that disorder from infecting the Troops that act in the middle States, many being now infected with it, has determined me by the advice of my Genl Officers here to introduce innoculation immediately as the only means of preventing this...
