[Amherst to Sharpe.]

New York, 12th February 1762.
Yesterday I had the favor of receiving Your Letter of the
26th January ; Enclosing a Duplicate of one of the 12th Novem-
ber ; the original of which never Came to my hands, or I
should certainly have Acknowledged it before now.
The Lords of the Treasury have transmitted to me the
Report of the Earl of Loudoun, & Generals Abercromby &
Stanwix,on the Demands made by Your Province with Direc-
tions to Cause the several Claims to be Examined into, & to
order payment for such part thereof as shall appear to be
Justly due.
I must therefore Desire You will be pleased to send a
proper person to this Place, with all the Necessary Vouchers
for the Several Disbursements Charged in these Accompts,
which shall be Laid before the Commissioners who are sitting
here for the Adjustment of other Publick Matters, and I shall,
agreable to the Directions of the Lords of the Treasury, order
payment for what Appears to be Just Charges against the
Publick; but I must Repeat that it will be necessary the Gen-
tleman You send for this purpose, is furnished with such
Papers & Vouchers as may set the Several Claims in a Clear
Light, otherwise his Journey will not be Attended with Suc-
cess, & will only occasion an unnecessary trouble & Expence.
I am, with great Regard
Your most obedient
To His Excellency Governor Sharpe Humble Servant
Jeff: Amherst
