Summary Extends gratitude of President and House of Representatives to Scott's corps of mounted Kentucky volunteers in the late campaign under Anthony Wayne [culminating in the Battle of Fallen Timbers]. Says that certain funds [whether for Scott or for each volunteer is unclear] have now been transmitted, apologizing for the delay caused by the "insurrections in the western parts of Pennsylvania" [the Whiskey Rebellion]. Asks that Scott forward his units' pay and muster rolls, that the balance due to his troops may be paid.
