Description
Regrets to learn that he is still invested by the savages; Oswego is to be provisioned and garrisoned with 2,000 men; Gen. Shirley will move probably on Crown Point; Abraham DeLamatre ought to acknowledge, by grinding a certain amount of Livingston's wheat every year, benefit done him by Livingston's bringing his flour into repute; he thinks it might be worth while for De Witt to follow the army as a trader; advises him to see [William] Alexander about it and to offer him a one-third interest; Dr. Vrimont has been called by Kinderhook, Claverack, and the Manor, at £120 per annum.
