Sinse writing the within I have receivd. yours of 21st. inclosing a letter from the seceratory of war.
The Clothing is now arived I wish that Lieut. George Washington Duncon may be appointed a pay Master I think him Faithfull and trusty to fill that office. I also wish to give up my vouchers and have my recruiting account settled with all the officers
I am informed by Lt Duncon he wishes to pay the ballance remanding in his hands, & has wrote to the Seceratary of War on the subject, as all the Muster & pay Roles will pass into my hands, I am in hopes for the futer those Complants will not be made without my acting more knowingly.
