Document Information
Date August 6, 1798

Recipient Name William Simmons (primary) Location: Philadelphia
Summary If two month's pay is twelve dollars than the pay for twenty days must be $2.66. The deductions seem to have used the same principle in all cases so Dyson may have made an error in his payroll.
