Colonel John Simpson.

I take this opportunity of enclosing to you the message I sent to the House of Assembly and their answer respecting the claim of the Pitt Regiment of Militia, and have the fullest expectation that if you attend in person at the next Session to support the same it will be allowed, as you may be assured if I am in the Province at that time I shall recommend it, and use my best endeavours to obtain what I think your Regiment have so equitable a title to, or should I return to England before the meeting of the Assembly I will leave it in request to the Commander in Chief for the time being to support the claim.
