Summary This letter, from armorers at New London, discusses problems caused by the fact that they do not receive pay when it becomes due. They are owed pay for several months, and lacking pay have to buy from merchants on credit, which allows the merchants to charge exorbitant prices. The armorers make it clear that there are many among them that can barely provide for their families, and that they will try to seek employment elsewhere if this situation cannot be remedied.
