There are no Cattle yet arrived, when they come none shall be distributed before I receive His Excellencys instructions. The pork shall be reserved about forty Barrells are now on hand, I [Can] expect twenty bbls more from West point this day, which will be also laid by, for special Occasions.
I wait impatiently for a messenger for Fish Kill, by him expect to hear something about Cattle; The Hard Bread is not yet got to hand from West point, but expected this day. The Ovens at West point are busy, and I hope those at the Village, can be also set to Work, I am Sir Your most Obedient Servant
