Description
Neglect of Schuyler by Congress is due to their ignorance of his difficulties; needlessness of the aid they have sent Virginia; Schuyler ought to go to Philadelphia whither he would accompany him, did not family affairs prevent; Montgomery's design of storming Quebec seems little adapted to the spirit and discipline of the troops; speaks of Montgomery's desire to leave the service; asks what the Governor can mean by the sudden dissolution of the Assembly.
