Lt. Col. Peters

Sir, a detachment of York Militia are on their way from York with 79 prisoners I am ordered to get ready a guard of at least 30 men to relieve them and request you will furnish me with the men as soon as possible to be at the court house tomorrow evening. I expect your answer this evening.

I have the honour to your most humble and obedient servant
