Description
The late resolve of Congress, discharging without a settlement all those men engaged for the war, was taken up very spiritedly by the corps at this place; to add to the confusion and alarm of Congress, a detachment from South Carolina landed yesterday; all the troops except the 1st are ordered out of town; [Robert R.] Livingston having resigned the secretaryship of foreign affairs, the candidates for the place were Scuyler, Jefferson, George Clymer, Arthur Lee, Tench Tilghman and Trumbull; as the first three were withdrawn, the choice became too meagre; it is now purposed to unite the departments of war and foreign affairs, and give the place to Gen. Green.
