To James McHenry
New York, August 22, 1799. “… I send you … some extracts from Col. Hall’s letter of the fourteenth of this month. He … requests a supply of money for recruiting purposes. I must revive my request on this subject.1 I should wish a supply to be sent on sufficiently large to make up the complement of three fourths of the several regiments.…”
