Description

This page of Robert Townsend's ledgers places Abraham Woodhull in Townsend's store on July 15, 1779. This corresponds with a period of Culper dispatches, and suggests Woodhull was probably in the store to pick up dispatches during this point. In the summer of 1779, Woodhull was still traveling to New York frequently, as indicated by his August 15th dispatch.
