being no less than a contemporary list of all the American
forces in Canada at the crisis of the first Northern campaign,
compiled by Col. Varick, then captain of the 6th company of
New York's first Continental Eegiment which formed a part
of Gen. Montgomery's force. At the time this document was
written Gen. Arnold had just completed his terrible expedition
through Maine, and had fallen back from Quebec to Point aux
Trembles to await the arrival of Gen. Montgomery's force,
which was proceeding down the St. Lawrence after the capture
of Montreal. The list is summarized in a note by Varick as
follows: "Of the within number of 1632 men supposed to
remain in Canada it is more than probable that 300 have passed
this Post without calling of which I have no account, so that
with Col. Arnold's Corps which may lie about 650, the whole
force of our army in Canada is something less than 2000 men."

* A most important letter to Governor Clinton. At this time
Arnold was in command of the American forces at West Point,
to which post Washington had appointed him at his request,
and he had established his headquarters at Beverly, formerly
the residence of Beverly Eobinson, the Royalist. It seems cer-
tain that Arnold was under English influence at this date
only a month before his open treason but his letter naturally
shows no evidence of such a condition of mind.

After stating the number of very necessary repairs he would
like to make to the military equipment of the post, he writes:



"In this Situation Sir, I am under the necessity of looking up
to your Excellency, for such Assistance, as it may be in your
Power or that of this State, to furnish me with, for securing
Posts, established at such amazing Expence, 8r which are of
such vast Importance to the United States in general $ to this
in particular . . . By the late Appointment of Col. Pickering
to the Quarter Master Generalcy (who is not arrived in Camp)
every thing is become so much deranged in that Department,
as to deprive me of all Hopes of seasonable Assistance from
him," etc.
