From Daniel Jackson, 26 October 1799
Watertown 26th. October 1799.
I have received your letter of the 6 Octr. enclosing one to Major Tousard—respecting the removal of Capt. Littlefield’s Company—which I have heretofore received, & acknowledged the receipt thereof the 11th. Inst. which Orders I immediatly communicated to Major Tousard & Capt. Littlefield. However I have again transmitted a Copy of them to Major Tousard.
Capt. Stoddard & Company, marched from Fort Independence, the 9th. Inst. for Newport, & I presume Capt Littlefield & Company will be at Fort Jay, before you receive this.
I am Sir with the greatest Respect your huml Servt.
