This 1779 notice requires the Selectmen or Committee of each town in Massachusetts, to submit an account of all supplies given, as well as any bounties, to any soldier or his family who was mustered as a member of the state's part of the Continental Army. This accounting was to cover the previous three years of the war. If the accounting was not turned in on time, the Selectmen or Committee would each be fined one hundred pounds by the state.
