Laprairie Oct. 22d 1775

Dear Sir

How we marched, and how we sped and every circumstance of news Lt [James] Gregg will inform you with pleasure -- The General acquaints me that we must stay here for some time & then go in a body of men who he is giving to send with Cannon to xx Montreal, & tells us that probably Coll. Easton will command the party-- This circumstance is unpleasing to our officers as they have heard that Easton isa good deal of an old woman & has been xx on the parade at Ticonderoga by Col Arnold-- under such an officer they cannot serve with chearfullness-- We hope however the General will alter the appointment-- If you come with the whole Regiment you can bring our conveniences along with you.

H.L. Jun.

Colonel James Clinton was the brother of Governor George Clinton, and the father of Governor DeWitt Clinton.
