Description
The wind was north-west when the fleet sailed; they stood south from Sandy Hook; the whole numbered about 300, but many were small, such as sloops and schooners, on which it is said the light horse were embarked; it would be impossible to hire a boat and follow them to get intelligence, as there are none here except those that belong to the enemy; will return to Bound Brook as ordered.
