Description
He is informed by Dr. [John] Weir that the British hospital is in the greatest distress at Northampton for want of provisions and teams to carry them forward; it appears that the inhabitants are determined to furnish no forage for the cattle; the situation is caused either by Gen. [James] Brickett's neglecting to leave orders at Northampton, or by the committee refusing to obey them; he requests that Heath will give the necessary orders for the relief and forwarding of the hospital to this place.
