Summary:
Writes to Jay that the troops who surrendered at St. John's have been separated from their officers, and the officers complain that this may give rise to temptations to lure the privates from their duty. Asks Jay to insure that the articles of capitulation are executed with honor, lest the war become displeasing to God, who granted them victory.
