To James Wilkinson, 18 December 1799
Philaa Dr. 18. 99
It appears from a letter which I have received from Lieut Wilson of the second regiment that he has been, thro’ mistake, ordered to Benington in Vermont. That order is
not to be obey to be considered as withdrawn and you will inform Liet Wilson accordingly
