Varick transcript, DLC:GW. In the artillery brigade orderly book, these appear as “Genl After Orders,” along with an additional sentence: “The Auditors office is kept at Mr. Treddels in purchase Street, enquire at the pay Master Genls” (NHi). Other orderly books, such as that of Maj. Gen. Benjamin Lincoln, have only the routine detachment orders on this date (MHi: Lincoln Papers).
