To David Wolfe
July 12. 1791.
The observations you make have been duly communicated to the Comptroller and will receive a proper consideration, but you will perceive that in adjusting the affairs of the Quartermaster Generals department, under the late Government, the information of the gentleman3 who was charged with the superintendence of it, can not fail to have considerable weight with the officers of the Treasury.
I am Sir Your obedient Servant
Mr. David Wolfe
