Summary Wadsworth encloses the muster and payroll of the recruits enlisted by him through May 1795. Since some of his men have been absent, it was not practical to include a complete receipt roll. Also included is the voucher for the bounty paid by Sergeant Clark to Joseph Burke and a bill of expenses incurred in pursuit of deserters.
