I do myself the honor to hand you herewith, a Contract entered into by Mr. John Banks, for the subsistence of the troops in the service of the United States, in the States of North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia, for the present year. I am really concerned, that we have been obliged to close this contract, on the execessive high terms agreed to, but the circumstances, under which we had...
The pressing necessities of the army, the late season of the year, and the difficulty of conveying information through the country, in it’s present situation, have prevented that extensive notice of contracts for the subsistence of the troops, which could be wished. General Greene, very early after the contracts were directed to be made, wrote to every character, whose circumstances and views...
From Williamsburg the 15th November, I did myself the Honour of informing Your Excellency of the respective Amounts of Mr Ross’s Debt against the United States, for the purchases made of the British Merchants in York, and of the sum resulting from the Sales of Hoaksley (or Robinsons) Store to be set against it. Two Bonds were taken for the latter, one from Braxton & Parker, with a Mr Howey as...
I do myself the Honor to inform Yr Excellency that the business of the Merchant’s account & the sales of Hoaksley’s store are brought to a final close. The multiplicity of the Merchant’s accounts rendered the business more tedious than I apprehended. I am now on my way to Richmond, & will from thence transmit all the papers relative to either affair. I left the transmission till I shall arrive...
Upon receiving the Honor of an appointment of Deputy Quarter Master General to the Southern Army from General Greene, dated the fifth of December last, I, immediately, according to the Generals Orders, repaired to Richmond in Virginia to Arrange the business in that State, as the principal support of the service under the present circumstances of the Carolina’s must be drawn therefrom....
Your Excellencies letter I had the Honor to receive, and with great pleasure acknowledge the impropriety of mine which gave occasion to it. I find the Error in my Estimate on the Article of grain happened through the Clerk who copied it in my Office. On seeing your State to Genl. Greene I naturally recurred to the original paper in my own possession and there found it stood in these figures...
Major Claiborne has inclosed me a Copy of your Excellencies Letter on the Subject of the Estimate I left with him to be complied with in Virginia. I find the Executive have estimated the Amount of the Sum which will be requisite to comply with my Claims, and that the Greatness of it fixes the Impossibility even of an Attempt. It is true, in forming the Estimates , I did not consult the...
I did myself the Honor to attend at the Door of the Council Chamber yesterday with a view of Conferring with the Executive on the subject of purchasing the necessary Horses wanted from this State for the southern Army, but as I could not gain Admittance immediately, my business in other respects would not admit of my waiting. I now take the liberty of troubling your Excellency with my thoughts...
I do myself the Honor to inclose you a return from Colo. Gibson for a Number of Articles wanted for the Accommodation of the Militia under his Command. Those are Articles of equipment which these Troops should have been furnished with before they were put into the Feild, which plainly determines that the Continental Staff are not the proper Officers for furnishing them. If your Excellency can...
The Baron Steuben directs that I shall apply to your Excellency for one Hundred and fifty Tents, and two hundred Camp kettles, for the use of the Militia, to be sent to this place immediately. Should your Excellency find it difficult for the State Quarter Masters to dispatch them, those of the Continental Service at Richmond will be ready to lend their Aid. Your Excellency has wrote the Baron,...
