By Special direction of the Commander in Chief and in conformity with the views of the Secretary of War, I am to desire that you will as soon as may be repair to the Seat of the General Government, where when arrived, you will take the orders of the Secretary at War. Previous to your departure, you will constitute a Deputy, who must act as Paymaster to the Western Army, and with whom you will...
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...
Having forgotten the circumstance, known to me when at the head of the Treasury Department, that forms of Muster and Pay Rolls had been prescribed by the Comptroller of the Treasury, I instructed the Assistant Adjutant General to devise forms of those documents and to transmit them to the several commanders. You will find herewith the forms thus prescribed with a letter from the Adjutant...
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...
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...
I send you an account of pay &c due to myself my Secy and Assistant Secretary down to the last of September inclusively which I request you to put in a Train of Adjustment without delay in order that the money which is wanted may be received. The last item not being within the establishment may require the sanction of the Secy of War to whom I have written on the subject. It may be proper to...
The post of this morning brought me a letter from Col Parker of which the inclosed is an extract. I trust his inference must be an erroneous one, as you gave me clearly to understand that with regard to arrears the money would be sent forward upon estimates without waiting for the regular Rolls in the forms of your office and that this would suffer no delay. My assurances have conformed to...
The Secretary of the Inspector General is entitled to the pay and emoluments of a captain. The expression is general. It is not stated in the law whether the emoluments of a captain of cavalry, or those of a Captain of Infantry shall be the rule of allowance. In a case of this kind the construction must be governed by the particular situation of the officer, and the nature of the service in...
I recur to your several letters of the 19 of September 5th. 22d and 25th of October. The characters which have been brought into my view most prominently as proper for the Office of Deputy Pay Master General, within my command, are Major Huntington of the 13th Regiment and Capt Williamson of the Dragoons. I am well satisfied that each of these Gentlemen is qualified for and worthy of the...
New York, November 1, 1799. “When I was at Trenton I considered it as perfectly understood between you and me that those officers of the old regiments to whom arrears of pay are due should receive the sums to which they are entitled immediately from your hands. I have been since informed that you decline this and refer the officers to their regimental Paymasters. They are of course left...
