New York, June 10th, 1786.


Dear Sir:

The enclosed Account will shew you the Respective Sums due to the Officers of the North Carolina line which will compleat their pay for the year 1782 and 1783. You will see that there is not included in it the disputed cases referred to by the Secretary of War. The deductions for monies and articles received, I hope may meet with a Concurrence, if not I will rectify any instances which may appear to be improper.

Much greater difficulties than what have respected their pay impede the procuring of the Subsistence still due to the Officers and the arrears of the Non-Commissioned Officers and privates. These claims shall however be attended to in their Order and the amount rendered as soon as possible, the Board of Treasury are so low in resources that they can scarcely make this payment.
