To Campbell Smith, 2 November 1799
NY. Nor. 2nd. 1799
It is my wish that you would act as Pay Master to the troops
not at Staunton formerly commanded by M now under the command of Captain Brock. Should you accept you will be pleased, after making the necessary arrangements with the Pay Mr Gl. to repair to Staunton as soon as possible.
You will be entitled to an additional allowance for this service of ten dollars pr. month—
