[Joseph Dashiell to Jenifer.]
Sir. Head Quarters Salsbury 16th Feb. 1777.
The Barer Capt. Handy wates on you with two Prisoners,
Collo Richardson ordered one James King, but he is so very
ill that he is not able to march. You have already one Ben
Walsten sent up who was an ensign in Capt. Handy's com-
pany of Milisha, as I conceve he cannot continue in office any
longer, and every one of Capt. Handy's Sergons were in the
Tory Camp, I would recommend Frederick Hill as the most
proper person to fill the office of Insign in that company.
I am Sir your humble Servt
Danl of St. Thomas Jenifer Annapolis
