Author Name Richard Parker (primary) Location: Carlisle Barracks
Recipient Name Samuel Hodgdon (primary) Location: Philadelphia
Summary Parker notes that there have been no stores received at Carlisle since his last return and not many delivered. The troops need cartridges and other articles which he will draw soon. Thomas Duncan is currently in the city and Parker thinks it would be a good time to buy the public land. Duncan is the attorney for the heirs of Wilson and has it in his power to settle the dispute. If it is not settled by Spring, they will fence off the public from the water entirely.
