Author Name Jonathan Haskell (primary) Location: Marietta
Recipient Name Samuel Hodgdon (primary) Location: Fort Washington
Summary It took seventeen days for Haskell to travel from Fort Washington to Marietta. He has applied to Major Craig for clothing but has not received any. Haskell's troops and those already at Marietta are in a wretched situation with respect to clothing and accoutrements. Ensign Tillinghast has been employed to erect a blockhouse which is not yet finished. Haskell has been at some expense in putting it in order and fixing one apartment in it for a magazine or depository for military stores. A smith has been employed to repair the arms and a surgeon employed to take care of the sick soldiers.
