New York September 25. 1799

Dr. Sir,

A Deputy Pay Master General for the troops under my command is wanted—Would Capt Williamson of the horse suit and would he probably accept? I inquire about no officer of your Regiment because one being already taken for from it as my Secy it would not be to do it justi⟨ce⟩ to detach another. I rely on your friendly & confidential opinion—

Thirty Dollars per Month in addition to pay & ⟨—⟩ is the compensation of the Dy P. M

Yrs. truly


Col Ogden
