King's Orange Rangers
Hamond to Campbell

12 September 1782


The Desertion is so great from the Transports that notwithstanding all possible precaution has been taken by the Agents to prevent it, the Ships now ordered for Spanish River cannot proceed for want of hands.

Among other methods that are practiced to draw the Seamen from the Transports, I am informed the Corps of Orange Rangers have enlisted several of their men and Major BAYARD not only refuses to give them up, to the Transports they belong to, but persists that he has a right to enlist any seamen that does not belong to any of His Majesty’s Ships,

I am therefore to desire Sir that you will please to give directions for the discharge of the two men applied for by Lieutenant ROBERTSON and Lieutenant SHEEPCOTE Agent for Transports, and that you will give such orders as you may deem necessary to prevent Seamen being enlisted in future.

I have the Honor to be &c.

Brigadier General CAMPBELL
Commanding His Majesty’s
Forces in Nova Scotia
