Phillips, Josiah, Jr.
Executive Department, Harrisburg, April 5, 1813.
To Col. John Phillips:
Sir: The Governor has directed me to inform you of his intention to appoint you Paymaster or agent under the several acts relative to the detachment of our militia now in the service of the United States under Gen. Harrison. In your fitness and integrity he has
full confidence ; and in confidence that you will accept thereof, he has directed me to forward to you a bond for your signature, and that of two other gentlemen, as your sureties, in whom he can have like confidence. This bond you will transmit signed, and attested by witnesses, to this department. Copies of the two laws under which you will have to act will be furnished you by the next mail. It will be necessary, also, that you forward to this place a letter of attorney, whereby in your capacity of agent or Paymaster
you authorize some friend here, say Mr. John Cochran, to receive for you, and in your name, any sum of money that may be drawn for, in your favor by the warrant of the Governor on the State Treasurer, for the purpose mentioned and contained in act entitled
"An .act to grant compensation, for extra services, to the militia of the Commonwealth now in service under the command of Gen. William II. Harrison," and of another act entitled "An act making further provision for the militia and volunteers in this State in
the service of the United States.
Let the authority you vest in your agent be general as to the receipt for you out of the Treasury of any sum that you may deem requisite, and the giving and signing of such acquittance as the State Treasurer may require. Arrangements are now making so that you
can receive the requisite money at the Branch Bank at Pittsburgh. You will apprise Gen.Crooks of your appointment, and direct him to send the pay-rolls required to be furnished by him, to the agent or Paymaster, at Pittsburgh. For the duties incumbent on you, you are referred to the laws under which you are to act in which they are detailed.
I am, &c.,
James TRIMBLE, Deputy Secretary.
GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO COL. JOHN PHILLIPS.
Selins Grove, July 8, 1813.
To Col. John Phillips:
Sir: The letter you did me the honor to write, under date of the 15th June last, I received on the 6th instant at this place, via Harrisburg. That no provision has been made for paying the Pennsylvania militia, now in service of the Union at Erie, is matter of much
surprise to me, and I have to regret that the remissness of those whose duty it certainly was to make an arrangement so essential to the service, cannot be remedied by any constituted State authority. It is not competent under any existing law for the executive to advance money out of the Commonwealth's treasury to pay troops in the United States service. The several laws of last session relative to military subjects, have no prospective provision. Legislative bounty is extended to those of our militia then in service under Gen. Harrison, consisting of drafts and volunteer companies who had
made a tender of their services to the President.
On another point made in your letter, I must remark that it cannot have been the intention of the Legislature that the executive should notify of the State donation the individual commandants of the latter description of troops, because they are not officially known
to the executive department of the State. Gen. Harrison was furnished with official copies of the laws passed for the relief and benefit of the Pennsylvania troops of both descriptions under his command, for tlie purpose of promulgation — so was Gen. Crooks. On the latter it was specially enjoined to procure pay-rolls, as well of
those men that served six months as of those that served for an additional period of time. Notwithstanding this injunction and the solicitude of the government to have those documents which he must have inferred from the circumstances of duplicates being for-
warded to him, yet, from Gen. Crooks, there was not received any acknowledgement of the receipt by him of these communications at the time I left Harrisburg.
Please to communicate to Col. Rees Hill and Quarter-master General Wilson Smith, (who have both written to me on the same subject with yourself,) the contents of this letter, and assure them both of my sincere regard, confidence, and esteem, and for yourself accept similar assurances.
GOV. SIMON SNYDER TO COL. JOHN PHILLIPS.
Harrisburg, November 12, 1813.
To Col. John Phillips:
Sir: Upon being certified that the detachment of the militia ordered into service by Maj. Gen. Mead, for the protection of the United States flotilla, then in the harbor of Erie, was discharged, I should immediately have appointed a paymaster for that detachment, but wanting data where from an estimate of the sum requisite could be made, and having a wish, also, to know how much of the money already placed to your credit at the Branch Bank at Pittsburgh, for the payment of other troops after payment, might remain in your hands. I delayed the appointment for the obvious reason of not founding a draft or public moneys on a contingency. Your letter of the 12th October, informing that ten or eleven thousand dollars would probably remain in your hands. If it had been accompanied by muster and pay-rolls of Gen. Mead's detachment, would have removed all difficulty. These documents I anxiously looked for from day to day, presuming the obvious necessity of them would induce Gen. Mead to have them forwarded. I relied with the more certainty on their receipt, under a belief that the purport as well of your letter of the 12th October, as that the letter itself grew out of an intimation from the Executive. To prevent a longer delay and consequent dissatisfaction on the part of the troops who particularly yielded obedience to the orders of Gen. Mead, under circumstances of extreme hardship, I am induced to inclose a commission constituting you paymaster of that detachment. For this service you will proceed to expend the money that may remain in your hands, having first procured the necessary muster and pay-rolls. But it is to be distinctly understood that you discriminate between those troops who were ordered into service by Col. Wallace, and those subsequently ordered by Gen. Mead, confining your official duty to the latter only. Such further sum of money as shall be equal to a
payment in full of the detachment shall be forwarded so soon as the
requisite data to form an estimate shall have been forwarded.
Very respectfully your friend,
