Letter from Commodore Wynkoop to General Arnold


On board the Royal Savage, August 17, 1776.

SIR: I find, by an order you have given out, that the schooners are to go down the Lake. I know no orders but what shall be given out by me, except sailing orders from the Commander-in-Chief. If an enemy is approaching, I am to be acquainted with it, and know how to act in my station. I am, sir, yours,
Commander of Lake Champlain.
