Summary General Lee has shown Orr a letter from Simmons dated April 1, 1802, stating that Caleb Swan has credit in the office of the Accountant for $1156.66 advanced to Lee for the Scouts of Mason County between May and December, 1792. Orr was in charge of receiving all money for Lee at the time and submitted vouchers for all payments received. He believes the amount is correct, but does not know where his vouchers are at present and believes they must have been in the War Office fire.
