Recipient Name James McHenry (primary)
Summary Craig strongly recommends lots No. 37 and 38 in the town of Waterford for the barracks and block house. The lots are to be sold at auction, and cannot be reserved. Craig therefore bought them in his own name, and expects the fee to be waived once application is made to the Governor or Legislature of Pennsylvania.
