To Aaron Ogden, 31 May 1800
Camp Union Brigade May 31st. 1800
The sick of the Brigade stationed here will remain after the disbandment under the care of a Surgeon. In case I do not inform you by Tuesday that one will come from New York I would thank you to engage Doctor Chetwood for the purpose. You will engage him under the idea that he will receive a compensation from the public for his services—
With great considn I am Sir yr. ob. st
