Letters from Morris's nephew Staats and from Maj. Rutherford inform him that Lord Loudon was appointed to command in North America, and that Cols. Abercrombie and Webb were made lieutenant generals; the latter was to sail in ten days to take command until the arrival of Loudon; he himself is to have the government of Jamaica; he means to continue the preparations for both expeditions, and in case Gen. Webb is delayed, will begin the operations himself; he must first hold a council of war in New York; will engage Governors Fitch and Hopkins on his way; desires Morris to meet him.
