To George Washington from William Hull, 2 December 1783

New York 2d Decembr 1783.


I take the Liberty to enclose your Excellency an Account of my extra Expences while commanding in the County of West Chester, and request a Warrant on the Pay Master General.

I am encouraged in this Application from an Assurance in your Excellencys Letter of the 8th of July that whatever was "just and reasonable" should be done on the Subject.

Altho’ the enclosed Account is far short of the extra Expence, to which I was subjected by my Situation, yet I shall be satisfied that the Residue be counterballanced by the Honor of the Command. I have the Honor to be your Excellencys most obedt Servt

Wm Hull
