"This day an express arrived from Genl. Harrison informing us that Commodore Perry had gained a complete victory over the British fleet. The engagement was on Friday last, the 10th inst. Was very warmly contested for a long time. It terminated in our taking all the British vessels on the Lake. We now have the entire command. All preparation is making to have the boats &etc. ready to embark for the Lake."
