Recipient Name Callender Irvine (primary)
Summary Simmons is forwarding part of a copy of his June 11, 1799 letter to Captain Irvine regarding overdrawn fuel by his company at Carlisle for January, February, March, and the beginning of April 1799. Irvine requested the suspension of the charge from Mr. Gunkle's account, but as more than a year has passed Simmons feels that action must be taken, and thus has admitted to Mr. Gunkle's credit the sum of $359.75. Simmons asks Irvine to nevertheless submit his explanations of his case so that Simmons does not request the Paymaster General to strip this amount from Irvine's pay.
