Prisoners from Carolina now in charge, for their pay. Mr
Hanson in whose hands money was lodged is from home and
the Gentleman who he left to transact business in his absence

the Guard in general are men in low circumstances, and we

We are Gentle"

account for the victualing some of the Soldiers.
