In the Postscript of a letter which I wrote to you on the 8th. instant, I mentioned to desired you, (in conformity to what I had understood to be a rule , in that subject cases of Officers marching to the Western Country,) to furnish all the Officers stationed at Staunton (Virga.) with two month’s pay in advance— From a recent conversation with an Officer of that Detachmt. who says he has...
I have just received your letter of the twenty first instant. I did contemplate, as the most expedient arrangement, the transmission of the requisite funds, for settling with the troops to the Deputy Pay Master Generals, but hope that the plan you have adopted will answer the end. I am, however, not without apprehensions that it may occasion delay. You will recollect that, by an existing law...
I have received your letter of the eighth instant. As it is probable, from the existing state of things, that the money forwarded for the recruiting of the fifth regiment will not be wanted for that purpose, I approve your proposal of furnishing Major Freeman with Nine hundred and eighty dollars out of that sum. W— ( Df , in the handwriting of Thomas Y. How, Hamilton Papers, Library of Congress).
There is a recruiting detachment at Staunton under the Superintendence of Major Bradley, and that officer informs me that they are in great want of a supply of bounty money. I have to request that you will forward without delay such a sum as shall be sufficient, with what has been already sent, to make up the bounty for four complete companies. With great consn. I am, Sir ( Df , in the...
I regret that I did not find in your letter of the 19 instant information that you were sending a supply of money for bounty and Pay to the additional Regiments. The Secy of War tells me that he had instructed you to report an estimate of what might be requisite and that he would sanction the advance. In my letter, to which yours is a reply, I request that two months pay may be forwarded. To...
I have received a copy of a letter from Col. Hamtramck to G. Wilkinson which contains the enclosed paragraph—It is sent to you for your information. ( Df , in the handwriting of Thomas Y. How, Hamilton Papers, Library of Congress).
Trenton , October 12, 1799. Quotes from Thomas Parker’s letter of October 6, 1799, concerning pay of the troops. States: “I would thank you to accelerate as much as possible the advances which you contemplate to the several regiments. There are some newly appointed officers in the four old regiments who stand in need of money to carry them to their posts. This is the case likewise with some...
Enclosed is an extract of a letter wher from Major Hoops— I know it is the regular established method to demand the receipt of the soldier himself as a necessary voucher. But it appears to me that a case of this kind, where the vouchers represented stated to have been forwarded by Lieut Pope are received, is an exception to the general Rule, and that such vouchers ought to be deemed an a...
It appears by a return just received from of Capt Bruffs Company of Artillerists that it consists of Fifty one non commissioned officers & privates—exhibiting only a deficiency of fourteen to complete the company. And it is represented that the bounty money has been exhausted. I think it probable that bounty money for a complete company may have been furnished. But even if this has been the...
I perceive by your letter of the 9th inst. that a difficulty has occurred in the paymt. of the troops, in respect to the provision which requires the warrant of the command. Genl. It is my opinion that it is upon the whole expedient that the chief of each Branch of the departt. of Supply and Pay should be stationed at the Seat of Governmt., and that he should have a Deputy with each Army or...
