Description: PIKE, ZEBULON MONTGOMERY. Autograph Endorsement dated and Signed, "ZMPike Col / Com'g," 12 lines on the verso of a request to pay Asa Lowell, ordering that the request be granted. The request, document in unknown hand, describing the costs incurred by citizen Lowell while caring for over 16 men of Colonel Fifield's Regiment in November of 1812 for up to two weeks. At bottom of page is statement signed by Surgeon Benjamin J. Moore, attesting to the claims of Lowell. (MRS) Np, 23 January 1813
Notes: ". . . Asa Lowel bears a Good Character as . . . [shown by] the Certificate of Judge Moore; and although the officers Billet is wanting yet it is unjust that the poor Citizen should suffer by the neglect of Col Fifield or others. The Ass't D. Q. M'r will therefore Discharge the within account."
