Summary Capt. Charles Hyde of the 1st US Regiment, was appointed paymaster to that regiment sometime in 1794, and received considerable sums of money of which a greater part remains at this time unaccounted for. $79,000 currently stands in his debt and he has been repeatedly called upon to settle his account. To grant further indulgence would not be performing Simmons' duty to the public so the matter is referred to Dexter.
