Yesterday Lieut. Shaderick Fulcher returned from Ocacock to which place agreeable to your order I dispatched him after Mr. Brimage, who had the day before he got down to the Bar been taken into custody by Capt. Anderson, in consequence of information he rec'd from the Justices at Edenton. The night before Fulcher arrived at Ocacock, Brimage being on his parole made his escape to Roanoke Island, where he was taken up by John Mann of that place and conveyed to Edenton. Enclosed is the number of men Lieut. Fulcher by my order had with him, and as I am at a loss what to allow them, I hope the Gov'r. and Council will make them a generous allowance, as they undertook this expedition
For seven days, who found their own provisions and other expenses.
