Queen's American Rangers
Dorchester Tuesday 6 oClock,
I have just received your letter, & purpose marching Early in the afternoon, by which time I hope the Qr. Master General has been so good as to procure the Casks for me that I mentioned to you.
I understand Mrs. ELLIOT is to apply to the Comdr. in Chief for four Negro boys now with the Queens Rangers, & I think it necessary to explain to you this matter-
The Boys are Taylors & Musicians, & are at this time clothed in the Rebel Artillery Uniform, which her Husband commanded.
I am Sir,
