I have employed this morning in researches with a view to the arrangement of our financial concerns in this quarter, the want whereof appears to have kept inactive three thousand of the Militia of this State, more than two months while provided and to be paid by the United States, & if not remedied may defeat the views of Government in this Expedition.
