Captain John Peirce, Commandant at Fort Washington, to Major John Mills, Adjutant General, Greenville

By John Peirce


Peirce reports that he has sent two detachments to Greenville. The first one is an escort of fourteen men, composed mostly of recruits with three from Captain Lyman's detachment, to accompany two public boats loaded with clothing and other supplies to Fort Hamilton and then to Greenville. The second one is an escort for dispatches of import from the War Office for the Commander in Chief which Peirce is sending to Mills. In a postscript, Peirce mentions the expected arrival of recruits from Pittsburgh.Mills, JohnDocument signed by Peirce. Remnants of red wax seal still in place
