Alexander Hamilton Papers

From Alexander Hamilton to Colonel Timothy Pickering, [21 January 1781]

To Colonel Timothy Pickering

[New Windsor, New York, January 21, 1781]

Dr. Sir

The General approves of your allowing a ration per individual to the Capt and crews of the dismissed craft not to the families, to be charged as you mention in a settlement of accounts.1

He thinks the middle of May will be the proper period for rendezvousing the ox-teams for the next campaign.2

Yrs. with sincere regard
