I wrote you under cover to our excellent friend Mrs. Spring on the 16th instant.
I presume you have it before now. When you return it is most likely the Lake will not be open; so you must get your ticket at Troy for Moreau Station, or Glens Falls, (for Glens Falls if you can get one,) or get one for Vergennes in Vermont, and take your chance of crossing over on the ice to Westport.
If you go soon, the route by Glens Falls to Elizabethtown will probably be the best. I have just learned that our poor Watson lingered with his wound until Wednesday about noon of the 19th Oct. Oliver died near my side in a few moments after he was shot.
Dauphin died the next morning after Oliver and William were killed, viz., Monday.
He died almost instantly — was by my side.
William was shot by several persons.
