To the Honb’l Council of Safety.
Since about the 12th of June I have supplied Captain Vance’s
I am therefore, to beg that you will furnish me with about six or seven hundred pounds by General Long, who will be so obliging as to get the money, by your granting me a Certificate, which place to my Account for these different Companies.
General Long can acquaint you with the mode we have adopted to supply the sick, which I am sure will meet with your approbation.
My account for supplying the 5th Regiment shall be made out, and forwarded the 16th August, which I apprehend will exceed the sum I have already received from the Treasurer as from 500 to 540 rations are daily served to that regiment; of course, I must be very considerable in advance in order to keep up a stock.
