I am honored with your favours of the 13th. 17th. and 18th. instant. Our death warrant accompanyed them. To complain is useless. Astonishment at my credulity takes place of every other reflection. And yet I thought it founded on the best authority that could be obtained. Oxford exhibits a scene not dissimilar to our primitive New England fast days. I feel for many of my officers, they left...
By the regulations for the recruiting service the Soldiers were not allowed to possess any articles of clothing except those furnished by Government. Those not being all of the best quality, when received; can not reasonably be supposed to be at this time in the most perfect order. The appearance of my Regiment in this respect, altho not greatly inferior to others, makes but a shabby figure....
I feel very forcibly the justice of your reprimand for the neglect, which has taken place in the Pay and Quarter Masters’ departments at this Post. Neither the Colonel, Pay, or Quarter Master, of the 15th. Regiment, is yet on the ground; And but few of the Stores in those departments, belonging to that Regt. have been brought to this post. No Field Officer of the 16th. Regiment is yet here....
I have communicated to Lieut Flagg this day your information that the President had accepted his resignation. There are a number of Soldiers in my regiment subject to fits, and are thereby rendered unfit for service. My Surgeon is of opinion they are incurable. Many of them are so sollicitous to obtain a discharge, they would gladly procure a man in their room. Would it not be adviseable to...
Colonel Peck the Martial at Providence hath applyed to me for a guard to take charge of some French Prisoners there. I have also received an application from Major Jackson of the 2d Regiment of Arts. & Engineers at Fort Wolcott to relieve a detachment of his men doing that duty, intimating, as he had other duty for them, a doubt of the propriety of their doing such duty. As by a late general...
There can be no doubt but that the natural gait of the man ought to be the measure of the pace, uncontrouled by any habit—but each man left to pursue his own, would destroy the Uniformity of movement absolutely necessary in great Bodies—to produce which we ought to adopt one as a standard; That of the man of medium hight would be most eligible. The length of the pace is dependent on the time...
I have the honor of receiving your favour of the 22d. Ulo., intimating the acceptance of Lieut Springs resignation. Doctor Barron began to render medical assistance at this post the second day of Decer. last. The enclosed letter and certificate I received from the frend of a Soldier in my regiment. The man was inlisted by Lieut Spring who has resignd. I have written to him for a Statement of...
In complyance with the wishes of Captain Babbit of my Regiment as will appear by the enclosed copy of a letter I received from him, I transmit his Commission, & with his request unite my wishes that his resignation may be accepted by the Secretary of war. With very great respect   I am Sir your Obt Servant P.S. An arrearage of nearly $3,000 for the pay of the 14th Regt to the 30th of Octr. is...
With the inclosed letter which I received from Lieutenant Flagg of my regiment, I transmit his commission, conceiving it proper to address it to you rather than the Secretary of War. I regret the resignation of this officer, as I had formed flattering expectations from his future services. He belongs to Captain Chandlers company, who also some time since resigned, as he informs me—he anxiously...
I enclose you the Commission of Martial Spring a second Lieutenant in my regiment with his request to have permission to resign the same. He has not expressd the reasons which induce him thereto. I suppose however among others, the uncertainty of the establishment has influenced him—many of the officers have it in contemplation, thinking it more eligible now to leave the service, than to...
