War Office October 9. 1782
I have been honoured with your letters of the 3d and have laid before Congress the Copy of your letter to Sir Guy Carleton.
I have written to General Greene respecting the disposition of the Troops which I mentioned to your Excellency.
General Hazen has been some time since notified that no passes signed by him would avail the Officers. In a late letter to your Excellency I have requested your opinion on the propriety or impropriety of indulging the Officers to go into New York. I wish sincerely your ideas of this matter.
I have the honour to inclose two resolves of Congress—one of the 1st and the other of the 4th instant. With the highest Sentiments of Esteem I have the honour to be Your Exs most obed. Servant
P.S. As the Indians are called in could not the troops be removed from Wyoming.
