Document Information
Date November 7, 1791
Author Name John Armstrong (primary)
Recipient Name Samuel Hodgdon (primary) Location: Fort Washington
Summary It seems proper to employ some person to build a flat which will be much needed since the river will not be fordable for the remainder of the season. Should Hodgdon think it proper to send two sawyers with tools and one or two mechanics, Armstrong will superintend the building of one. The grindstone at Fort Washington is not very large and will in one month be worn out so a new one should be sent with the return of the boat.
