An order was issued, some time since, as you will recollect, directing enlistments to be “for and during the existing differences with France,” or for the term of five years at the pleasure of the government. It appearing probable that the number of men enlisted under these conditions is very inconsiderable, and an expectation having been entertained among them that they would not be separated...
I have directed the Pay Master General to send to his Deputy in your district bounty money subject to your order for four complete companies of Infantry. You will be pleased, if there are any officers of the four old regiments within your reach, to send for them that they may be employed in recruiting the men. If none such are near you, you will imploy the officers of the new regiments for the...
Not knowing certainly what may be the communication to you from the Department of War, I think it proper that you should be apprised of what is doing here towards the disbanding of the army. For this purpose, besides the general orders which will be sent you, I shall keep you advised by letter of my views. I now send you the copy of a letter which I wrote yesterday to the Secy of War, and of...
[ New York, May 19, 1800. On May 30, 1800, Pinckney wrote to Hamilton: “The last post brought me your favours of the 14th: 17th: 19th: & 20th: instant.” Letter of May 19 not found. ]
Altho’ I have not been officially advised of it, yet I have received information sufficient to satisfy me that an act of Congress has passed for disbanding the twelve additional regiments on or before the fifteenth of June next, granting an allowance to the officers and soldiers of three months pay from the time of their discharge. I mention this to you that it may be understood unofficially...
I was in due time favoured with your letter of 25 of April. I am glad that our ideas coincide as to the formation of a Regiment for Exercise & battle. It is a part of the plan (though the extract sent you did not go so far as to shew it) that the companies for those purposes shall always be equalized. This is no doubt essential. The inconvenience of occasionally separating the men from their...
The S of War mentions to me that the recruiting service still continues in some of the corps under your command. I presume from this that my intention has been misapprehended. The General order of the eleventh of March was sent to you under the idea that you would communicate it to the respective posts in your district. I would thank you to have this done as soon as possible. Df , in the...
I have received your two letters of the tenth and eleventh instant. You will have been informed by the General order, before this, of the appointment of Major Beall as Deputy Inspector General. I consider it as entirely within your competency to order the seventh regiment as well as the tenth or any other annexed to your command to repair to your Head Quarters wherever they may be. I do not...
I send you enclosed for your information a Copy of a letter which I have written to the Deputy Qr. Master General within my district— Sketching the outlines of the duty of that Officer. With Copy, in the handwriting of Ethan Brown, Hamilton Papers, Library of Congress. H to Aaron Ogden, April 15, 1800 ; H to James McHenry, April 19, 1800 .
I have received your letter of the third instant with its enclosure. The arrangement of which you have sent me a copy perfectly agrees with my instructions. Previously to the receipt of your letter of the third instant, I had written one to you on the eighth, a duplicate of which is enclosed. The supplementary instructions contained in this will be observed except in one particular. As the...
