[Wm. Whiteley, Caroline County, to the Governor and Council]

Your Excellency & Honours I have sent forward two more of
our Drafts and one Substitute which is all we have ketcht of those
that deserted and I apprehend we shall hardly get aney more of them
for I believe the rest of them have left the state — there will be an
application made to your Bord by Mr Gibson in Respect to one
Allimby Millington who was drafted in this County and has since
kept out of the way — he holds himself as a Militia Man of Talbot
County but he was a living in this County at the time of the Draft
and was taken down by the Assesser as a fifteen shilling Man I shall
submit to your determination weather we have a Right to hold him
as a Draft or not.

[John Crawford Jr, Port Glasgow to Francis Hall, Esqr, Queens
Town, Queen Anns County, Maryland, North America] (For-
warded by John Marshall)

Last year I was made happy to hear of all my good friends in
Queen Anns by a young Lady of this Country who had resided
some time in your agreeable Family
By this time I suppose you'll have forgot your old friend Craw-
ford, But I can assure you, that Crawford has reason niver to forget
you and good Mrs Hall for the many Kind Civilitys Shewn me, when
in Maryland. Many are the disagreeable events that have happened
Since I left you, now ne'r Eight years
If this should reach you It will only Serve to tell you, That I am
well and Maried to a most agreeable young lady by whom I have
had two Children, one of which is in life (a son). That my Name
sake John, and Mr & Mrs Peacock, And Robert Campbell are all
well; What think you of the old Batchelor Robin to marry a young
girl of twenty.
May all Manner of Happyness Attend you Mrs Hall and family
[P. S.] Please forward the Inclosed. It would make me ex-
tremely happy to hear from you with your Queenstown news.
