Mr Elliot
The claims of the Admy on acct of the conveyance of the first stores to B. Columbia never cease. I am unable to throw any light on this demand. Perhaps Colonel Moody may be able to do so. You will observe that this is a demand for freightage of Stores, whh according to this Letter, were discharged at Gravesend.
