To Benjamin Williamson, 17 May 1800
N.Y. May 17th. 1800
You will advance to Lt. Richmond on account five hundred Dollars, for which I will give you a warrant, in such form as shall be most conformable to your instructions. It is to enable him to defray contingent expences of the detachment under Major Buell.
With consideration &c
