Royal North Carolina Regiment
Tryon to Clinton, Proposal

Morris’s House 27th Nov. 1777

Dear Sir

The Bearer Mr. [John] HAMILTON late from Virginia, has proposals to make to your Excellency for raising a Body of Men for His Majesty’s Service.

He was concerned in an extensive trade in Virginia before these troubles, and was known to me as a Gentleman much Esteemed in that Colony.

I could not therefore decline giving him this introduction to your Excellency, as I also flatter myself his intelligence of the Southern Colonies (both as to their Interior Situation and Commercial proceedings) will be in your Excellency’s opinion interesting.

He is perfectly well acquainted with our friends the Regulators.

If his Plan is practicable I trust you will honor it with a recommendation to Sr. Wm. HOWE.

I am very Sincerely Dr. Sr.
your Obt. Servt.

His Excellency Sir Henry CLINTON
