To Samuel Vance, 6 March 1799
New York March 6. 1799
In consequence of a letter from the Secretary at War transmitting me certain charges against you preferred by the Accountant of the War Department, I have ordered a General Court Martial to convene at Philadelphia the 14th instant, of which Col Moore is appointed President & Mr Charles Herr Judge Advocate. You will attend for trial accordingly. The Judge Advocate will no doubt concur in whatever may be requisite for the full elucidation of the affair
With consideration I am Sir Your Obedient Sert.
