From Theodore Meminger, 17 May 1800
Fort Mifflin May 17. 1800—
I have to request you will accept my resignation, of the appointment of Pay Master to the second Regt. Art & Engs—Owing to the dispersed situation of the Regt., some time will be required to settle my Accots. I yesterday lodged in the Pay Master Genls. Office the Muster & Pay Rolls for March & April—it is my wish, not to make the payment for those months, as it would involve me in accounts that could not be finally settled for several months—
⟨Wi⟩th respect Your Obdt. Servt.
Captn. 2d. Regt. Art & Engs
