Letter to Ezekiel Williams, in part: "I wrote you lately to send in all the official Prisoners with you to New York, I am now by order of Congress to require you to keep back any Captains of…war that may be in your state and also such officers as have been taken since your return to me of the 3'd July last and who belong to the new…raised in this country or the Militia. It is meant that no others should be sent in till further Orders, then Gen'l Prescott and such British Officers as you have under your Care.
