The Subject under Consideration before the board is whether a plan to draw together a large Body of militia in aid of the continental Troops in the dead of winter to attack General Howe in his winter quarters is eligible or not. However desireable the destruction of General Howe’s army may be & however impatient the public may be for this desireable event; I cannot recommend the measure. I...
I am informed there is a party of Indians in Sussex County and that the Militia appointed to guard the Stores have left them; which may give the former an opening to destroy them. Will it not answer a good purpose to send into Sussex a party of Light horse both to secure the Stores and aid the Qr Master there in getting out teams?
