Head Quarters 25th feby 1783
It was some time since Reported to me that sundry Artillery-Stores had been stolen from the Magazines at Kings ferry—The last Officer who was Relieved also reports “A barrell of Powder stolen owing to the deficiency of the Magazine.”
I wish some inquiry to be made of the Offr, commandg the Artillery into this repeated loss of Stores that measures may be taken to prevent it. I am Dr Sir Your very Obed. serv.
