To Caleb Swan, 31 October 1799
NY Ocr. 31st. 99
I understand that the Account of Mr. Brown Ast. Secretary has been sanctioned at the War Office, and that the accountant has been instructed to pass it.
You will be pleased to
have send on a check for the money as soon as possible, and any receipt which the forms of office may render necessary will be immediately given—
With Great consideration
