Honorable to the Citizens and to the active and assiduous COMMITTEE of DEFENCE. My Aid-de-camp, Lieut. Gadsden, of the U.S. Engineers, conducted the Works at Brooklyn, assisted by Mr. R. Nicholls and Mr. A. Mercien; while Major Horn conducted the Works at Haerlem. The Surveys, Maps and Small views, were furnished by Capt. James Renwick and Lieut. James Gadsden; aided by Lieuts. Craig, Turner, De Russy, Kemble and Oothout. Mr. Holland furnished the large Views; they are beautiful specimens of Talent. The large and elegantly finished Map of the Haerlem line, was drawn by Mr. William Proctor, from Capt. Renwick's Survey. Next Spring it will be requisite to complete such of the exterior Faces of the Works as have been left in a rough state. I have honor to be, Gentlemen, Your Respectful, Humble Servant, J. G. SWIFT, Br. Gl., Chf. Engr. U.S. Brooklyn, L.I., 31st Dec., 1814
