From Ebenezer Stevens, 25 October 1799
New York 25 Octo 99
The Company of the 13th. Regiment has been cast away at Hell Gate & the Vessel fill’d with water. I have therefore sent ⟨two⟩ Petty Augres to take them to Elizabeth Town Point, & have given orders to the Contractor to supply them with provissions, as what they receivd at New Haven was mostly lost, all which I hope will meet your approbation.
I am with great consideration Sir Your obt: Servt.
