To Thomas Parker, 9 December 1799
NY. Decr. 9. 99
I have received your letter of the 27th of Novr. with it’s enclosure.
You have already been twice informed that the arrangement of relative rank which you transmitted me is confirmed—Enclosed is a list of the Officers in the order in which they are to stand.
I have sent to the Secretary of War the letters in recommendati⟨on⟩ of Mr. Thom, and have again urged that the vacancies in your regiment be filled.
