Description
He convened the field officers of his brigade a few days ago, and they assented to the proposal for raising a third regiment; they will try to bring the men into the field without delay whenever called for; soon after his arrival here, he was requested by Gen. Gates to take command of a Connecticut brigade, which he did, in order to be of use until his own is collected; he has given a Hessian a pass to Clinton, and hopes the man will answer their purpose; he will send some more soon, as they desert daily; he has not forgotten the clams, but has been ill with a fever.
