General Schuyler to Governour Trumbull



Ticonderoga, November 10, 1775.

SIR: I do myself the honour to enclose you a return of the prisoners of the Seventh and Twenty-Sixth, as also of those of the Navy , all of which go to your Government; and I have ordered Captain Mott, who conducts them, to dispose of them as your Honour shall direct, and beg you will send your orders for that purpose to Canaan. From Major Preston, and the officers of the Twenty-Sixth Regiment, I have experienced the most polite and friendly attentions when I was a stranger and a traveller in Ireland. A return of good offices is the duty of every honest man; and I therefore beg leave to recommend them to your Honour' s notice, and would wish, if there is any choice in the quarters which you shall destine to them, that theirs were the best, which I shall consider as a particular favour done me.

I am your Honour' s most obedient and most humble servant,


To Governour Trumbull.
