If the paymasters to the Regiments to which the Officers going upon the recruiting service respectively belong will apply, I will grant them Warrants equivalent to the pay and subsistence of the Officers up to this time—One person, by bringing orders to receive the money for the rest, may execute the whole Business—As the Gentlemen go to Connecticut expressly upon the call of the State, I think it will be but reasonable in them to defray their necessary travelling expences, which in these times far out run the pay of an Officer of the highest Rank. I am Dear Sir Yr most obt Servt
P.S. Be pleased to send Genl Phillips letter to Staten Island.
