Militia Letter August 15, 1814

Cramahe 15th Aug 1814


       Inclosed I send you Reports from two of the Lieutenants of the Northumberland Militia and wish for your instructions in that respect. Lieutenant Jones, by my order was directed to be on the Carrying Place by 4 o’clock; the day he states he could not receive provisions for his detachment, and the Requisition to me for assistance of the Return Boats required the greatest dispatch;  I only have to say that such delays create uneasiness in the Militia and harder for me to furnish men when required.

I have the honour to be Sir, your most obedient Humble servant, Mo. Peters 1st Regiment Northumberland Militia

To: L. Col. Nathaniel Coffin Deputy Adjutant General  Militia Kingston

Lieutenant-Colonel Peters Commanding Northumberland Militia

Enclosing reports of two Lieutenants on duty and stating how uneasiness is created in the Regiment by delays.

Dated: August 15th, 1814

On His Majesty’s Service, Lieutenant-Colonel Nathaniel Coffin, Deputy Adjutant General of Militia, Kingston
