what measures he thinks ought to be Taken for the Security of this
and the two Neighbouring Colonies, dureing the approaching winter
and how far he expects the Inhabitants of this Province in particular
will Contribute towards carrying them into execution: That you
may be the better able to Judge of the expediency of those Measures,
I shall Lay the Generals Letter before you, not doubting but your
Determination and proceedings thereupon will be agreeable to his
Excellencys Wishes

The heavy rains that have fallen of Late had rendered the roads
almost impassable for Carriages, these few days past of dry Weather
has given things a more Favourable aspect and every thing is in
motion the Last Division being to March from hence tomorrow

My State of health Still Continues precarious but not so bad as to
occasion any Stop to our operations which must now Come to a
Speedy Conclution on account of the Advanced Season of the year
