[From Executive Letter Book.]

Newington, 2d June, 1777.

Your letter of the 31. ulto. I rec'd informing me of your drawing on the Treasury for 216 dollars for yourself and party, and that you are of opinion the other prisoners will stand in need of their allowance to clear the quarters. I have not the least doubt that the Treasurer will answer your draft, as well as such as may be drawn by any other of the prisoners for what may remain of their allowance from the public, especially if you send him a certificate from General Jones mentioning the sum due to each. If he has not money, he will give you bills on the Continental Treasury. If you meet with any difficulty in obtaining either the one or the other, shew this to Gen. Jones, or Mr. Willie Jones, either of whom will see the substance of it carried into execution.

I am, Sir, yr. ob. serv't.,
R. C.
Captain Duncan McNicol, Halifax.
