Physical Description
A. L. S. Endorsed: "... Major Moncrieff's letter from Niagra Falls in Camp." 1 page. Fo
Description
Thanks him for the clear and useful instructions sent in his letter; is sorry Sir Jeffrey [Amherst] is disappointed in carrying out his plans for the fall; the loss of the sloops, with the disaster at the Carrying Place have retarded the sending of supplies to Detroit; the detachment which the General [Amherst] thought had reached Gladwyn has not started for want of carriages and horses; the latter carried off, it is suspected, by the Genesees; all the provisions have to be transported on the mens' shoulders; if he could trust the Senecas he would start out on a snow shoe expedition to Sir William's house.
