CAPT. PETER BACOT 1ST REGT. TO BRIGADIER GENERAL SUMNER.

Halifax, June 1st, 1782.

Sir:

I have to acquaint you I was disappointed in pursuing my rout to the Southward with Captain Fenner, in consequence of my Horses leaving me, since which Captain Davis has informed me that Officers are not immediately wanting in Camp. The distress of the Officers for some time past cannot have escaped your notice. I therefore hope to meet with your approbation to have my account settled with the auditors, after which any order you please to honor me with shall be happy in the execution of.

I am With the greatest Respect,
Your Most Obedient Servant,
PETR. BACOT.
