Extract Of A Letter From Hamilton, County Of St. Lawrence dated September I8, I8I2.
We have had a smart engagement in our neighborhood, between our troops and 33 Canadian batteaux, which we endeavored to take in Putney's Bay. We had about I70 men in 3 large boats, in one of which was a brass cannon. The British were too strong and the battle ended after about three hours firing, in the loss of Church's boat ( which had been employed by the Government) - and one man ( Macumber) killed and two more wounded.
      Buffalo Gazette.
      Tuesday. October 20. I8I2
