John C. Fitzpatrick, Assistant Chief Manuscript Division of the Library of Congress, provides annotations and explanatory notes which are based on original vouchers, receipts, and loose memoranda, which were transferred from the Treasury Dept. to the Library of Congress, to be placed with the great collection of Washington papers there. "These accounts present a mass of valuable Revolutionary detail, not the least important of which are the foundation outlines for a complete history of the secret service of the Revolution and the materials for a comprehensive study of the Headquarters of the Continental Army."
