To Moses Hook, 26 May 1800
Head Quarters Plainfield New Jersey May 26th. 1800
A change of Quarters from N York to this place has prevented an earlier attention to your letter of the sixteenth instant.
I have made such observations
on the subject of it as appeared to be proper to the Pay and Master Gener and Assistant Quarter Master Generals on the subject.
(Df, in the handwriting of Thomas Y. How, Hamilton Papers, Library of Congress). On the verso of the letter there are several calculations.
