North Carolina
New Hanover County.

These are to Certify that Henry Costin Served as a Soldier in the Company of Artillery Commanded by Capt James Walker in the Late Expedition against the People called Regulators, and was present in the Battle of Alamance where he received a wound near the knee which has made him very Lame & will be the cause of a Lameness in that Leg perhaps as long as he lives. And as the Assembly have so Generously rewarded every Person who ventured their lives on that Expedition in the Service of their Country, We beg leave to recommend the above named Henry Costin to the General Assembly for such a reward as his Services may Merit.
