DeLancey to Clinton re Pierre DePeyster

No. VI

New York 18th December 1782


The Bearer, Mr. De PEYSTER from New Jersey, who from the beginning of the Rebellion is represented to have exerted himself in favor of the British Government, and who has latterly in a very disinterested manner, rendered us every Service in his Power, which he was particularly enabled to do by his Residence with the Enemy, was a little time after the arrival of Sir Guy CARLETON, by some accident discovered, and arrested, but fortunately made his Escape to this place.

His distressed Circumstances having compelled him to apply for Support, he received a temporary Relief only, Sir Guy Carleton being of opinion it would be better for him to apply to those General Officers in England who were acquainted with his Services, as they would, in all probability be able to procure him a more permanent Support, than any that can be granted here.

I have, therefore, Sir, taken the liberty of recommending him to your Protection, and of reminding you, that his information has been communicated to you through Mr. DEBLOIS, and Mr. OGDEN, which renders it unneccesary for me to say any thing farther, on the Subject.

I have the honor to be
with the most respectful attachment
Your very Obedient servant
Adjt. Genl.

Sir H. CLINTON sends his Compliments to Mr. DePEYSTER, sends him Col. DELANCEYs letter as above, which he sincerely hopes may be of use to him.

Great Britain, Public Record Office, Audit Office, Class 13, Volume 109, folios 26-27.
