To Nathan Rice
Camp Scotch Plains [New Jersey]
May 31st. 1800
I have directed the D Q M General1 to furnish the troops when disbanded with transportation to places from which they can conveniently procure conveyance to their respective homes. The sick such of them as cannot be conveyed with their corps will remain in their quarters under the care of a surgeon. The Contractor will supply them as heretofore.2
