Franklin, 17th February, 1787.


I expect your Excellency is acquainted with the appointment of Commissioners for Examining of the Acc’t of the late Com’rs for Settling the Various Claims of the Officers and Soldiers of the Continental line belonging to this State.

Report informs me I am one; the Law respecting said appointment further says your Excellency is requested to make Application for the Muster Rolls returned to the War Office, which Papers I suppose Necessary before we can proceed on business.

I beg your Excellency would take the same into Consideration and inform me by the Bearer when you think those Papers will be ready, or whether any person is dispatched for that purpose, or whether the Comr’s must send for them by Order of your Excellency, and if so, that you would signify the same to us that we may make provision for the same by Timely application to your Excellency for Cash for that purpose.

I am with sincere Esteem, Your Excellency’s,
Most Obedt. & Hble. Servt.,
