GW at Philadelphia.
Alexander Hamilton forwarded GW a letter from William Polk, supervisor for the revenue of N.C., which probably involved the difficulties of collecting the excise tax on distilled spirits. Secretary of War Henry Knox wrote GW stating that he intended to send a duplicate of his 17 Feb. 1792 letter to Creek Chief Alexander McGillivray to James Seagrove, agent to the Creek Indians. Knox also submitted a motion made by Senator James Gunn concerning an act that would have decreased the number of troops being raised to protect the frontiers. The Md. Executive Council wrote from Annapolis recommending Capt. Henry Carbery for military service in the reorganized army.
