Extract of Capt. TICEs Letter dated Montreal 13th Novr. 1777, to Colo. JOHNSON
I arrived here from Tyconderoga the which I left on the 2nd instant. We destroy'd all the Works there and brought all Stores, of every kind away with us.
After my Return from Fort Stanwix General CARLETON order'd me to Tyonderoga with our Rangers & Indians to Joyn General BURGOYNE if I cou'd; But it was impossible-
The Service Suffers much for want of you in these parts, you may be assur'd nothing wou'd give more pleasure than to see you here.
If you don't Come I hope you will not forget sending your particular Instructions early in Spring, and a Commission without fail, for I have been Extremely ill treated by Mr. BUTLER & others this Summer for want of them, which Sir John and Col. CLAUS have been witness to, and in Short all of us have been used ill.
I shou'd be glad to have your Instructions about raising more Rangers, as Numbers are Constantly plaguing me to be employed in your Department.
