To Rufus Graves, 26 September 1799

New York Sepr. 26th. 179⟨9⟩


Your letter of the fourteenth of this month has been delivered to me.

I have written to the proper authority on the subject of bounty money, and have been given to understand that informed that a supply has been forwarded sufficient, with what you have already received, to make up the complement of one half of the regiment. I trust therefore your wants will soon be releived. With great consideration I am, Sir &c: &c:

It does not appear from the statements which you have made that a larger sum is at present necessary—As soon as I it shall be informed appear that more money is wanting for the purposes of recruiting I shall take measures to have it forwarded.

With great consid

Col. Graves—
