GENERAL SCHUYLER TO JAY.
Albany, June 30, 1777.
Your favor of the 20th Instant I received on the 26th and I have not been able to snatch a moment to give you a line in answer.
General Clinton I am informed has a majority of votes for the Chair. If so he has played his cards better than was expected.
The enemy have opened the ball in every quarter. It is pretty certain that they will pay us a visit from the westward as well as from the North. I am in much pain about Ticonderoga; little or nothing has been done there this spring. However if the garrison escapes, or if it does not and we get a reinforcement from below and are spiritedly seconded by the Militia we shall prevent them from [advancing] on the side of the Lakes. It would greatly inspire the people with confidence to see the whole Council of Safety here; as I shall be to the Northward somebody ought to be here to give advice and assistance to our people in the western quarter. I therefore earnestly wish to see you and your brethren.1
My compliments to all friends,
I am Dr. Sir
