Summary Wright asks that the one hundred dollars owed to the late Lieutenant Charles Wright be paid to his order despite the policy that prohibits sums less than five hundred dollars to be handled in this manner. He adds that he had a tiring journey from Knoxville and was detained eight days due to the high waters in French Broad. Sundry officers with their troops have arrived at Fort Wilkinson recently.
