I know he was on the run but where exactly?

His letters indicate he was in New York though not precisely what part


wiki suggests he was in New York city at the Mortier house from June 6 to August 27, 1776

"Richmond Hill" (Abraham Mortier House)
Varick & Vandam Streets,
Manhattan, New York City, New York

Looks like he was still in New York.
"Meanwhile, on Staten Island in New York, George Washington expresses dismay that many islanders are "too favourably disposed" to join the British."

I don't know off the top of my head, but I just visited where he was on July 4th 1754. Fort Necessity looked good today. :-)

Wondering what they were going to eat.

The British arrived but did not attack yet. He was still in New York waiting for the coming battle.
