22 July 1815

From Letters Received By The Office Of The Adjutant General, 1805-1821, a document in the Willoughby Morgan file:

Postmarked Michilimackinac

"I find myself considerably embarrassed in my command.  ...It is the time that these Islanders cut hay at some ten miles distance for the winter--but my hands are tied for the want of water transportation... .  And above all...I want money.  It is unpossible [sic]...do without a military agent."
