15th May, 1777.

Dear Sir:—

Capt. James Wilson waits on your Exeellency for warrants on the Treasurers, and has his return with him, which he has 'listed himself twenty four and Mr. McCauley his Lieut. has 'listed seventeen. I should be glad that he could any ways get one hundred pounds before he left town as I could let him have about that quantity which with that sum he might make out till the time he makes his return the last of the month as I shall send down to the Treasurers his warrants with Capt. Sheppard's.

I am, Sir, your most humble serv't.,

Pray let him have two warrants, as what he says and his Lieut. I am very sure is true.

To His Excellency.
