Summary The Treasurer has placed in the hands of Richard Morris, Supervisor of New York, $400. Howe was told by him that the Treasurer would provide money for recruiting but he had not been given the names of the recruiting officers nor is there any money on hand. General Knox has told Morris that he had filed a warrant in Morris's favor for the money he needed. Morris has come to New York with one sergeant and three men but has but one dollar in his possession. He will wait a few days for the money to arrive. If it does not he will return to West Point.
