To Samuel Eddins, 14 November 1799
NY. Novr. 14th. 99.
Your letter of yesterday has just been delivered to me.
I have heretofore directed you to proceed
from to Brunswick in New Jersey, and I now confirm the order.
There are at Fort Mifflin a drummer and his boys who are to be sent from that place to New York. Wherever this letter may
find reach you you will have leave a trusty sergeant to take charge of these persons, and inform Lt. Meminger of the name of the person and where he is to be found.
