Recipient Name John White (primary)
Summary Regarding Lt. George Winchester's account, a mistake was made which resulted in $83[&]56/90 still being due the US. Perhaps the recipient can recall one of Winchester's certificates which would rectify the situation. He also received the sum of $80 pay for service in 1782 from the Dept. of Prisoners but he may still feel he is due this sum. Also, Congress has eliminated the recipient's department so he may need to seek employment in Maryland.
