Author Name James McHenry (primary) Location: War Department
Recipient Name William Simmons (primary) Location: War Department
Summary Simmons is to settle the account of the Department with John and Amos Woodward. The barge or boat at Fort Trumbull should be noted as part of the Quartermasters department in the contract. McHenry is not certain the watch coats were needed but they should proceed to pay the contractor anyway. Bills for medicine chests with medicines do not need to be inspected by a physician or druggist.
