They include letters received, drafts of letters sent, acounts, receipts, military orders, inventories, muster and pay rolls, military pay accounts, indentures, court-martial papers and civil court papers. They deal with: Varick's command of a company in Alexander McDougall's battalion at Ticonderoga and in Canada during 1775; service on courts-martial in 1775; problems of the batteau service in northern New York State in 1776; his position as secretary to Gen. Philip Schuyler in 1775-1776; his work as deputy muster master general, inspector general at West Point, first aide-de-camp to Benedict Arnold (including papers about Arnold's defection and subsequent investigations), and as recording secretary for George Washington (including papers about the transcription of Washington's letters).
