To James Read, 6 November 1799
N.Y. Novr. 6th. 1799
Majors Brooks and Toussard are expected for this Quarter in a short time—I wish to know what accommodations for the Winter can be afforded to these officers at Fort Jay without
infering interfering with the convenience of those already in the Garrison—
With consideration &c—
