Murray 12th August 1814
L Col. Peters
I have to report to you that when I returned from York to the Carrying Place with my detachment I applied to M. Wilkins Commissariat Agent for my pay but could not get it and have not yet received it but have applied several times according to my orders from you that I might pay the men.
Yours, Abram Simmons 1st Northumberland Militia Com. Detachment
