King's American Rangers
Deputy Inspector General's Report

In the Year 1780 there being no prospect of Col. ROGERS compleating a Battalion in Nova Scotia the men already inlisted for that Corps were form'd into three Companies, and the usual Number of Officers Appointed to Command them, and those Officers only were included in the monthly States of the Rangers in that Garrison-

Captn. MOWAT from the number of men inlisted by him, was intitled to the Command of one of those Companies, but as he had been the most successfull Recruiting Officer; and prefering an Active service which was then carrying on at Penobscot he was Order'd by Brigr. Genl. Fras. McLEAN with a Detachment on that Station, from whence he afterwards sent a number of Recruits to Halifax.

On this Service it was his misfortune to be taken Prisoner by the Americans, who refused to exchange him on account of his knowledge of their Country, and at the time of disbanding the said Companies he was not return'd from Captivity, and there being no certainty of his being alive, he was not included in the List of Officers of that Corps-

(late) Dy. Inspr. Genl.
