From Henry Knox1

War Department, July 14, 1794. “I request that you would please to have placed in the hands of the Naval Agents who have definitively accepted of their appointments certain sums of money with which to commence their operations.… You will be better able to form a judgement of the sum than I can, as you will decide upon the articles which are to be obtained by them.…”
