From Elias B. Dayton, 20 February 1800

Elizabeth Town 20th. Febry. 1800

Sir,

I have been honored with your letter of the 18th. Instant.

In compliance with instructions given me by Colo. Smith, I had, about eight days since, contracted for three hundred Cords of Wood to be delivered at the Cantonment at three & a quarter dollars pr. Cord. I also received proposals for the furnishing of wood standing & upon laying the whole before Colo. Smith, the plan adopted was thought most advisable

I am sir, with great respect Your very humbe. servt.

E. B. Dayton

Major General Hamilton.
