To Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, 12 November 1799
New York. Novr. 12t. 1799
I send you the enclosed paper
and request that you will which more properly would have been addressed to you. You will, no doubt, inform the Commandant of the fifth regiment where the parties are to be found, in order so that his instructions may reach them—
With great respect & Esteem I am Sir Yr. obedt. servt.
