Summary The letter encloses a return for ordnance and stores for July, and the vouchers for stores delivered. Bryant hoped the work on the 6 pound carriages would be finished but three blacksmiths and three carpenters and wheelwrights left some time previously. He requests another ten or twelve hundred dollars soon because the twelve hundred that recently was sent to Bryant will not cover the cost of the stock supplied to him as well as the pay for the workmen for any period beyond the end of July.
