Title: Letter from the Committee to the Northern Army to the President of Congress, On their way to Albany they examined the Fortifications in the Highlands. The Fortress is unfortunately commanded by all the grounds about it, and is much exposed to an attack by land, but the most obvious defect is that the grounds at West Point are higher than the Fortress. To render the place impassable this place should be occupied. Letter from Colonel James Clinton and others I General Montgomery, expressing their regret that he has mistaken the motives which induced them to remonstrate against a number of prisoners being suffered to remain in Montreal, and they urge him not to think of quitting the Array at this critical time, as the worst of consequences must almost inevitably follow from it.
