Writes, "But as I am now in arrest you and all the Army will hear from me through the channel of Mr. Loudons partner. I shall not enter into a detail of the merits or demerits of the arrest, because probably you may be of the court martial, nor shall I enter on other subjects, as this is not the best conveyance I could wish."
