Description
[Joshua] Whitney has declined the inclosed commission [of captain in a regiment of levies], giving as a reason the precarious situation of his family; the command of the company is therefore claimed by Lieut. [Isaac] Bogert; the latter has shown activity and vigilance while in Col. Gansevoort's regiment.
