Document Information
Date May 8, 1792
Author Name John Moylan (primary) Location: Lexington
Recipient Name Samuel Hodgdon (primary) Location: Fort Washington
Summary Moylan bought a quantity of letter paper for Hodgdon in the belief that he was much in want of it. It has been forwarded by wagon in the care of Mr. Tate. The price Moylan paid was the lowest that it could be procured at. It is much finer than the paper Hodgdon has been using and Moylan hopes that he approves of it. He received Hodgdon's letter of the 30th too late to respond by express but will set about procuring horses as indicated in the letter. He will let Hodgdon know what progress is being made so there is time to provide for their safe conduct to Lexington.
