George Washington Papers

To George Washington from Samuel Huntington, 14 April 1781

Philadelphia April 14. 1781


Your Excellency will receive enclosed, a resolve of Congress of the 13th Instant, relative to the Mode adopted to pay the new Levies, recommending it to the several States to make Payment.

And also directing the future Application of Claimants for Settlement of Accounts, for Payment of liquidated Accounts, for Rank, Discharges, Losses &c., or for resignation.

The former Part of this resolve respecting the new Levies, I presume is intended for those only who served the last Campaign, and if any of them have received partial Payments from their regimental Paymasters, which is probable as I am informed by the Paymaster General, Care should be taken to transmit the same to the respective States. I have the Honor to be with the highest respect Your Excellency’s most obedient Servant

Saml Huntington President
