Charlestown 25th Jany. 1782.
On my return in June from the long march thro' No. Carolina, I immediately began to prepare Returns of the Provincial forces in this District for your Office, & sent them in His Majesty's Ship the Hope, a copy of my letter is inclosed:
I proceeded to Wilmington, & on my return here in Decr., the Hope being lost, we have made up another sett, to June, Compleat, which I hope may come safe to hand.
We have Mustered all the Corps in this Province to 24th Decr.
I am going immediately to Georgia and on seeing the Regiments there, will transmit returns of the whole to that period.
When these returns were closed, I was very sick, and desired Mr. JENKINS my Assistant to write you.
Absolute necessity obliges me to beg you will be pleased to make some addition to my Pay.
I have the Honor to be,
Edward WINSLOW Esqr.
