Dear Sir

Mr Fowler arrived here with
the Hospital Stores and Medicines the Eveg before
the loss. Having some days before given up the
immediate Command of the Regular Troops
to Col. Boyd. I sent the paper to him - Mr Fowler
informs me that he has moved the [company?]

I thank you sincerely for the [congratu
lations] you offer on the event of the late action
And I do not wonder that you should be
at a loss to form a correct opinion con-
cerning it - for the accounts which have been
published bear no more resemblance to it than
to any other action - "Officers & men fighting in
their shirt tails" had no existance but in the
imaginations of those who wrote the accounts.

I have requested Mr Fowler to take to you
a paper containing the latest Indian news.

Be assured that it will give me
great pleasure to hear from you whenever
an opportunity shall ocur & I promise
as much punctuality in my answers
as I use in the Correspondence of any of my
