CHARLES MOORE AND JOSHUA CAMPBELL'S RESIGNATION.
[From the MS. Records in the Office of the Secretary of State.]

November 6th, 1780.

Dear Sir:

I am informed there is a necessity for a draft of officers to turn out immediately. I understand you draft for officers on Saturday next. I am in such a poor State of health that I am not able to do the public the service I would wish, but Capt. John Harvey is willing to turn out as a volunteer on my Resigning my Commission to him, which will save the trouble of drafting a first major, on which terms I Resign in favour to Captn. John Harvey.

I am, Sir, Your very Humble Servt.,
CHARLES MOORE.
