Content Description Aaron Forman, Assistant Deputy Quarter Master, writes to Shaw to inform him that he has recovered a mare that had been left at Sadler's Tavern. Explains that she was "badly foundered" and he did not think she could be made fit in time for the next campaign. Because of that, and because she was very old, he decided to sell her. The bearer of this letter will bring a new horse, which he hopes is good enough to replace the mare.
