[Mantz to Council.]

Gentlemen. Philadelphia Augt 25th 1776.
I arrived at this city on the 23rd Inst to join our respective
Battalion commanded by Col Charles G. Griffith by whom I
understand that we are at the loss of a Major and desired I
should act in that capasity until further orders from the Honble
Counsel of Safety whome I expect will give me the preference
as I raised the first Company in this Battalion and I believe
that I am one of the first in the Province of the Flying Camp.
If the Honble Council will please to commison me to act as
Major I would be highly oblig'd to you to forward it as quick
as possible and Remain with Gratitude Your Hble Servt
Peter Mantz.

Original.
