Fort Wayne, October 12, 1811:
I received your letter of the 21st Ult. respecting making a requisition the Comms. officer of Detroit for flints and cartridge paper. I enclose to you my Inspections and Monthly Returns for the garrison under my Command which I believe are correct.
1st Reg. Infry
Adj And Inspector Army
This letter was written pre-war as was this one.
