Abstract:

Carroll, not yet a member of the Continental Congress, offers some "hints" to Gates prior to his official appointment as chief of command in Canada.

Carroll suggests how Gates should conduct his campaign and includes his doubts that Burgoyne has more than 2000 men which will make the American force more than sufficient once it has recovered from smallpox, bad discipline, lack of provisions and "checks it has met with ..."

Carroll desires Gates to keep the land on the St. Laurence above Montreal; retake the Cedars [post] to prevent Canadian communication with the Indians; send a diversionary force to Detroit; keep the country around the Sorel [Richelieu] River to deprive the enemy of wheat; break up roads, construct abbatis and harass the enemy on marches; send reinforcements in October to force the enemy back to Quebec, and then fortify the pass at De[s]chambault and build "gondolaes" and a 36 gun frigate to hold the St. Laurance and make the enemy march overland.

He advises Gates not to be prejudiced against General Schuyler and hopes they will work well together, and sends his regards to Washington, Mifflin and Moylan.

An portrait print of Carroll accompanies the letter.
