A. L. S. Endorsed. 2 pp. Fo
Lieut. Van Tuyl has come from Minisink to apply for help, as the troops stationed there are gone, except twenty men to guard the stores; since the capture of Paterson and his family scouting parties of Indians have been seen on the frontiers, and one Crum, formerly of Minisink and now among the Indians, has been through the neighborhood; a spy has returned from the Indian towns with the report that two parties have marched this way; the inhabitants are packing, and probably all the families west of the Wallkill will move in; asks if the levies now raising could not be sent at once.
