1. Anthony Wayne’s letter to Knox of 9 May 1793 reported the army’s arrival on 5 May at Hobson’s Choice, Wayne’s temporary headquarters on the Ohio River, at present-day Cincinnati and near Fort Washington. The major topics of this letter were the inadequacy of the site, concerns about provisions and clothing, and Wayne’s positive evaluation of the military skills of his troops (Knopf, Wayne description begins Richard C.
