Description
As the Board of War assigned him to follow the Marquis of La Fayette to Canada, and the expedition is now stopped, he asks further orders; he is a lieutenant-colonel of engineers, but two of his countrymen who are his juniors in the French service are colonels in the same corps; he cannot serve under them, and asks that he be made lieutenant-colonel à la suite in the riflemen or light horse; Col. Morgan has applied to Gen. Washington for a small party of musketmen to be joined to his corps under command of Fleury; and Pulaskey, whose brigade major he has been for three months, would give him a company of lancers; he would like either of these commands.
