Jedediah Huntington was born in Norwich Conn., August 4, 1743, and died in New London, September 25,
1818. He came of a family distinguished for patriotism, his father, General Jabez Huntington, and his
four brothers, taking an active part in the Revolution. He himself raised a regiment, in which he
was a captain, which joined Washington's army at Cambridge; and from that time until the end
of hostilities he took an active part in its campaigns, attaining the rank of Brevet Major General. After
peace was declared he held various positions of trust and honor in his- native state, culminating in the
Collectorship of New London, to which he was appointed by Washington, in 1789, and which he retained
until 1815. He was one of the original members of the Cincinnati.
(As the portraits of most of the members of the Andre1 court-martial are well known, I have not thought it
necessary to reproduce them. General Huntington's, however, is very scarce, and I am indebted to Dr.
Emmet for it. Of General Parsons I believe no portrait exists.)
Sutherland's letter, page 79, should be dated 1780, not 1781.
Andre's Statement.—On the 20th of September I left New York, to get on board the Vulture, in order (as I
thought) to meet General Arnold there in the night. No boat, however, came off, and I waited on board
until the night of the 21st. ***** 1 went into the boat, landed, and spoke with Arnold. I got on horse-
back with him to proceed to-----f house, and in the way passed, a guard I did not expect to see, having
Sir Henry Clinton's directions not to go within an enemy's post, or quit my own dress. (The rest
corresponds with the general narrative as given.—w. a. )

Richard Varick was born in Hackensack, N. J., March 25, 1753, and died in Jersey City, July 30, 1831.
Commissioned a Captain in McDougall's New York Regiment in 1775, he rose to the rank of Lieutenant
Colonel in 1777 as Deputy Muster-master General. He was an ardent admirer of Arnold's military genius
and became his Aid. The. discovery of the treason nearly upset his reason (as it did that of Major Franks).
He became Recording Secretary to Washington soon afterwards, and after the war was Recorder of New
York City (1783-89), and from 1791 to 1801 he was Mayor (the first) of the city. He was many years
President of the Merchants' Bank and of the American Bible Society. In all the relations of life he was
most exemplary, a model man in both public and private life.
