24 Horses Received

Document Information
Date February 8, 1792
Author Name John Smith (primary) Location: Columbia
Recipient Name Samuel Hodgdon (primary) Location: Fort Washington
Summary Smith announced that he has received all 24 of Hodgdon's horses which seem to be hearty and doing well. He has heard that there are a number of horses on the other side of the Ohio which can also be brought over if Hodgdon wants. Smith will ask some his neighbors to board them which they will do for a small reward. He has asked about public strays in the town and if he receives any will inform Hodgdon. He needs ropes for a few halters which should be sent at the first opportunity. The envelope leaf includes a list of soldiers, possibly related to the horses.
