Content Description Knox certifies that $982 were paid to Captain Steven's and Bedlam's companies in the artillery regiment, before their march from Cambridge to Canada. Charles Knowles, Pay Master to the Massachusetts artillery, certifies that General Knox has accounted for $1,500 payment due to the regiment of artillery. An explanation for the unaccountability of $640 is given in an entry numbered "4." He attributes the loss of the vouchers to the disappearance of part of his baggage and papers during the evacuation of New York in 1776.
