From Captain Jones, Northumberland, 26 March 1810
To the Honorable A. Eneas Shaw, Adjutant General, York
The Honorable A. Eneas Shaw
Your letter of the 21 instant having being presented to the Lieutenant Colonel who refused to receive it I took the liberty to open it as the Major had given in his resignation to the late Colonel Chisholm but I can give no Reason why the militia was not called out or returns made as I did not conceive it a Duty incumbent on me ~.
Sir, I have the Honour to be a Humble Servant
Elias Jones, Captain Northumberland Militia
