Alexander Hamilton Papers

To Alexander Hamilton from Colonel Timothy Pickering, 22 November 1780

From Colonel Timothy Pickering

[Passaic Falls, New Jersey] Novr. 22nd. 1780


I believe it possible tho’ difficult to have Teams at the slote by Thursday night to take up five more Boats.1 I will endeavor to effect it. I presume they will come provided with oars. Must not they too be muffled? what Route are they to take? I shall be glad of further Instructions. It will doubtless be necessary to impress Horses on this Occasion.

1These boats were being assembled for the projected attack described in Pickering to H, November 6, 1780, note 1.
