To Benjamin Lincoln
November 12 1791
With regard to the boatmen, I fully approve of your idea, upon the strength of what you suggest, that the service will not suffer by dismissing three of them during the winter season.
I am, Sir, with great consideration, Your Most Obed Servt
Benjamin Lincoln, Esqr.
