It is probable you will receive The Count De Rochambeau’s orders to march, with your regiment to West Point. Should this be the case, you will only come on with such officers as are to remain in service, on the new-arrangement and such men as are engaged for the war, or at least for a term, that will last through the next campaign.

I have recd your favr of the 27th ulto—As I have been informed that the State agreed to allow the Levies higher pay than the Continental Troops, I imagine they will take measures to satisfy them at the end of their service, charging the Continent with the usual monthly allowance.

I had determined not to march the Levies, attached to your Regiment, to the Army, as their term of service was so nearly expired, and as Count Rochambeau expressed a wish that the Regiment might remain with him, I assured him that it should not be ordered away while he thought it of any service to him. Your stay will therefore depend upon circumstances....

I have been favd with yours of the 27 March, inclosing a Return of your Regemt and the proceedings of a General Court Martial held by order of General Cornell. I am under the necessity of disapproving the sentence of the Court against Windsor Fry, on account of its irregular constitution; as by the Articles of War a General Court Martial for the trial of a Continental Officer or soldier can...
I am to request that you will transmit me as soon as possible an exact Return of the number of non Commd Officers and privates of your Regiment designating in a particular manner what proportion of them are inlisted for the War and the different terms of service of the residue digested in monthly Columns.
