This working draft of George Washington's proposals for the new American army was probably given by the President to Alexander Hamilton for his comments, since it remained in the Hamilton family until coming to Columbia. Written on both sides of two integral folio leaves, it has sections headed "Half-pay, & Pensionary establishmt." and "Compleating the Regiments and altering the establishmt. of them."
