Description
Asks what quarters he would like in the town; hears that his health is so good that he will be able to take the command; desires to be informed fully on this point; has learned that Monckton was somewhat offended because Townshend signed the capitulation: it was necessary under the circumstances, considering Monckton's distance from the place of treaty; he will not leave if his presence is required for further operations, but he informs Monckton that he has Gen. Amherst's leave to return to England.
