I have received your letter of the twenty first of April. I intend to make it a general rule that discharges of soldiers be founded on the certificate of the Inspector and Surgeon approved by the Commanding officer. When the cases you speak of come to me in that form I shall be ready to act upon them. The subject of double rations has been so often matter of communication with the S of War...
I have received your letter of the twenty fourth of April. At present things will continue as they are, a guard continuing to be furnished from the Artillerists at New Port. It is not improbable that the brigade under your command will be removed to Rhode Island before long. In that case the Artillerists will be releived agreeably to Major Jackson’s request. With great consideration   I am Sir...

I have received your letter of the second instant explaining the causes of the delay in forwarding pay and muster rolls, and rely on your exertions to produce greater regularity in future.

I mention this to you that it may be understood unofficially...
New York, May 18, 1800. “I send you the enclosed papers, and you will do with them what shall appear proper.” Df , in the handwriting of Thomas Y. How, Hamilton Papers, Library of Congress.
I have directed Major Bewell to repair to the Brigade under your command for the purpose of enlisting four complete companies of Infantry. You will give every facility in your power to the accomplishment of this object. It would be well if, previously to the arrival of Major Bewell, recruits could be provisionily engaged. Df , in the handwriting of Thomas Y. How, Hamilton Papers, Library of...
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...
Your letter of the twenty seventh has just been delivered to me. I participate with you, and with the officers generally, in the regrets that naturally flow from the state of things. It would give me pleasure could I direct an indemnification of the expence which you have incurred in procuring musical instruments. I shall not fail, however, to write to the S of War and urge a reimbursement. I...
I have directed the D Q M General to furnish the troops when disbanded with transportation to places from which they can conveniently procure conveyance to their respective homes. The sick such of them as cannot be conveyed with their corps will remain in their quarters under the care of a surgeon. The Contractor will supply them as heretofore. Df , in the handwriting of Thomas Y. How,...
