To William Simmons, 18 September 1799
New York Sepr. 18th. 1799
I enclose to you the account of Dr. Coffin who has acted as Quarter Master to the garrison of Niagara.
This Gentleman is at present on Governor’s Island, but I have advised him to proceed to Trenton for the purpose of
⟨—⟩ making the explanations that may be necessary with respect in order to the settlement of his affairs. I could wish that every facility might be given to the adjustment of the accounts consistently with the usages of service.
With great consideration I am Sir &c
