The General thanks Major Tupper, and the Officers and Soldiers under his command, for their gallant and soldierlike behaviour in possessing themselves of the enemy' s post at the Light-House, and for the number of prisoners they took there; and doubts not but the Continental Army will be as famous for their mercy as for their valour.
