Regulars & Militia between 6 & 7 Hundred - Capt. Clark must be a good judge of the force, having been in the Battle of Brownstown & Maguaga & at the surrender of Detroit, At Malden they are strengthening the forti- fications. Tho' they do not calculate on an expedition from the US this season -- They are a pprised of Gel Winchesters force, but understand he is building a fort at Defiance to remain there during the Winter - They have no Knowledge of any other preparations making in the state of Ohio This contains the most important part of the information I have gained by Capt Clark -- I have given him to understand, that his t reatment here after will depend entirely on the truth of his relation -- I send him off on the morning to Gen Harrison - I write you sir in great haste, the preparations making for our March will employ me the whole night -- I take with me one light six pounder, drawn by six horses, -- I am in hopes of finding some of those vessels in the River & with this peice I can advance 30 miles pr day

I am very respectfully your excellencys most Obt H1 sr
