New York Sepr. 10. 1799
The Secretary of War
(to whom your letters were irregularly addressed has sent me a copy of your letter of the thirty first of August which was irregularly addressed to that officer. A sufficient supply has been sent on for the present use of the Regiment to which you belong, and I have written to Col. Graves directing him to forward to you such a part of the Articles furnished as shall make up the proportion to which you are entitled.
It will be well for you to open a correspondence with Col. Graves on the subject.
With great consideration I am, Sir & &—
