Description
He has whiled away the time in hope, but seems no nearer to going home; the garrison is well settled except that the New York men need blankets and clothing; he has written to [Abraham] De Peyster repeatedly for them: adventures of scouting parties; prisoners brought in by [Robert] Rogers; message to Col. [Beamsley?] Glazier; Capt. Grants [Noah Grant?] says the ice of Wood Creek will scarcely bear a man; Lake George the only route; learns from Capt. Gaylor, who was relieved by Capt. McGinnis's company, that neither the Commissioners nor De Peyster will pay his company for the time they garrisoned this fort.
