I am really more alarmed at the Contents of your letters of the 29th and 30th of Augt and 9th of this month, than at any occurence which hath lately happened—and I am embarrassed with respect to one paragraph in that of the 30th of Augt vizt "The other which is the principal one, that you may found a warm application on it to the states—You will, I hope, keep this intirely to yourself, you...
Partly for want of answers to my letters to you of the 2d and 4th instants, requesting money for the use of our Commissioners and the accounts for the maintainance of Prisoners, and partly for want of answers to some matters proposed by me to Congress, I have been under the necessity of deferring the meeting, which was appointed on the 18th, to the 26th of this month. It will be extremely...

Varricks letter of 3d sepr 1782, inclosed, are made to me, I am under the necessity of referring them to you—I know your distress on the score of public Money and can therefore only request that you will assist Colo.

Previous to the meeting of our Commissioners, who will be Majors General Heath and Knox, I am under the necessity of applying to you to provide the means of their support while they are upon the Commission—I shall propose Orange town as the place of meeting—I should suppose five hundred Dollars, and that in Specie (as they will be in a part of the Country where paper will not be negotiable)...
I am under the necessity of enclosing you the Copy of a letter I have this day received from Mr Walter Livingston, with that of one from him to Mr Richardson Sands. From these you will perceive to how precarious a situation we are reduced in regard to the Article of Flour—the Quantity for which Mr Livingston calls upon Mr Richardson Sands is so very trifling, that it is scarcely worth...
I have had the honor of receiving your Cypher of the 17th and letter of the 20th ulto Should the money alluded to in the first be paid into my hands, it shall be applied as you direct. I should have had hopes from yours of the 20th that all difficulties between you and the Contractors had been settled, had I not received a letter from Mr. Walter Livingston dated at Morris town the 31st of last...
Mr Wells, who handed me your several Favors of the 8th—9th & 13th, arrived here on the 21st & was immediately furnished with passports from me to proceed to the Enemys out posts. If he succeeds in his purposes & brings out any thing to my Care, I shall most cheerfully comply with your Request in receiving & disposing of it. Colo.

I have received by Colo. Tilghman your Letter of the 5th instant, with a particular state of your Accounts with The Contractors for Money advanced them. I am much Obliged by this Communication, as it will enable me to combat the Constant Assertions which are made by Mr Sands, that the Contract is not fulfilled on your part. I am very glad to find that Mr Edwards, one of the Beef Contractors,...
On my Return from Phila. I found many Complaints against Mr Sands for frequent want of provisions—as well as Badness of Quality in what he did furnish—both these Greivances have subsisted till the present Time and the Troops have been without their Rations for several days at various Times. In Castg about for a Remedy, I find, none is provided in the Contracts, but what is to be applied by the...

(of which the enclosed is a Copy) in answer to one from the Genl to the Contractors, on the subject of repeated deficiency in the supply of provisions, during my absence & the great distress of the Troops consequent thereof. As the Representation contained in this Letter differs materially from the...
