1782-05-29 Account Settlement for William Henry

FROM COL. WILLIAM HENRY TO PRESIDENT MOORE OF PENNSYLVANIA IN WHICH HE DESIRES A SETTLEMENT OF His ACCOUNTS.

LANCASTER May 29th 1782

Sir.

I have advanced 2,448. towards Recruiting the Pennsylvania Line, forty-eight pounds more than I have orders for. The Recruiting Service goes on but slowly. I should for my part be glad to have my Accounts settled, and perhaps it would be prudent for Col. Thompson to have his settled with the officers, as there is little more to be done at present. I returned yesterday from Carlisle, where I was summoned to give evidence in behalf of the State in General Roberdeau s action for Damages sustained in carrying on the Lead Works in Juniata. The Jury found for the State generally.

I am, Sir,

Your Obedt. hum. Servt.

WILLIAM HENRY

His Excellency

William Moore Esq.
