Isaac Craig
Pittsburg 22 Nov 1794
Sir
Your favor of the 14 Instant is this [undecipherable] come to hand.
Capt. Lyman's Detachment is here together with twelve Dragoons brought to this post by Colonel Slough, who has left this detachment in charge of a Corporal & returned to Lancaster, both those Detachments are in Quarters here and have not yet learned from Governor Lee whether they are to continue or be removed to a post on the Monongahela, I presume that it will be determined shortly as it is said the Governor intends in a day or two to set off on his return to Virginia.
I am Sir with great
respect your Humble Servant
Isaac Craig
Honl Maj. Genl Knox
