To William S. Smith, 6 January 1800
New York January 6th. 1800
I inclose you a copy of a letter from the secretary of War announcing the appointment of Mr Walter B Voorman as a Lieutenant in your Regiment. Mr Voorman’s appointment has been forwarded to him. You will therefore make such a disposal of him as you may think proper
with true consideration
