Letters from Home: Period Accounts

Leonard Gansevoort Jr to Leonard Bronk on events of 1778

Albany 1 Sept 1778


I expected before now to have heard from you respecting the Flour which I spoke to you about  I would be glad if you would let me know whether you have it to spare  I am greatly in Want of it as I have not any to use at this Time

We have nothing new at this Time but that two Men have been scalped at Fort Schuyler and three taken Prisoner at Cherry Valley by the Indians

Your Neighbor Jacob Halenbeeck was this Morning brought to Goal I believe it will go hard with him if the Information against him be true

Your Friend
L. Gansevoort Junr.
