* Contains orders to Spencer regarding his movements. ' ' 7
wish to God the Militia may join you soon so as to enable you
to keep your present post. It in in my opinion very important,
it protects a fine country of forage much wanted by the enemy

such check would probably take an active part. I hope you
have detach'd the four hundred men to Heath or his heart will
break. . . . The fact is so many men of the party I march'd
off from White Plains are so feet gall'd that without taking
two regiments from Heath, I could not march a force sufficient
to the Jerseys and perhaps the fate of America depends on
the competency of my force," etc.

release of Gen. Burgoyne's army, Gen. Gates with his division
has marched from Danbury to Connecticut river there to wait
events. Three brigades march this morning for Farmington
under my orders for the like purpose .... Gen-. Putnam is
playing the old preposterous game with flags, attended with

served by Great Britain. It is a fact that a single insurance
company, in Baltimore, . . . has paid, on French captures, above
600,000 dollars, and, for captures by the English during the
