This series contains letterpress copies of replies sent by the comptroller's office in response to inquiries regarding Revolutionary War soldiers. The letters provide information derived from records that were ultimately transferred to the State Archives. Some of the comptroller's records used to derive information regarding military service were subsequently damaged or destroyed in the New York State Capitol fire of 1911. Therefore, in certain cases these letters provide military service data, the original source of which no longer exists.
