Document Information
Date December 6, 1794
Author Name Frederick Frye (primary) Location: Salem
Recipient Name Joseph Howell (primary) Location: Philadelphia
Summary Sent along muster rolls, but uncertain if his method and format for submission were correct as Frye never received blank rolls or instructions on how to submit the documents for approval. Requested pay for his soldiers based on the rolls Frye transmitted, and if they paid is being withheld due to the method in which he submitted the documents, Frye requested immediate instruction. Frye stated that paying the soldiers would encourage enlistment of new recruits and retention of soldiers.
Document Format Autograph Letter Signed
