To William S. Smith, 30 September 1799
New York Sepr. 30. 1799
I have received your letters of the twenty eighth instant with their enclosures—
The winter quarters of the eleventh, twelfth and thirteenth regiments will be on Green brook in the vicinity of the Scotch Plains. Preparatory measures are now taking for the purpose.
I shall be particularly attentive to the wish which you express in the case of Mr. Fowler.
With great considerat I am, Sir
(Df, in the handwriting of Thomas Y. How, Hamilton Papers, Library of Congress).
