Recipient Name Joseph Howell (primary)
Summary His accounts remain unsettled due to a charge against him by Colonel Johnston for $1200 part of which was used to pay officers and soldiers and the remainder returned to Johnston. Most of the relevant vouchers were left with the recipient's office and their auditors. Since his account cannot be settled without these documents he inquires as their whereabouts.
