Summary:
No money has arrived for the payment of the troops and Congress is already six months in arrears on these payments. There have already been three mutinies and a fourth may leave the Army without any men in this department. We need an extra $600,000 immediately. The enemy forces in Rhode Island are quite large, at least 6000 men.
