"Southampton, September 9, 1775.

"GENTLEMEN: I would inform you that I marched with my Company from Montauk, the 7th instant; am preparing to march, and shall set off by the middle of next week. My Company will want a number of guns, as the inhabitants that supplied them will not let them go away, pleading the want of them themselves. I give you this timely notice, that the Company may not be detained long when we come to New-York, &c.

I am, Gentlemen, your humble servant,


Peter V˙ B˙ Livingston, Esq."
