GEN. ALLEN JONES TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter-Book.]

Sept. 8th, 1777.

Sir:—

At length I am able to make your Excellency a return of the Halifax Brigade, tho' a little incomplete in the officers of some counties, owing to the novelty of the thing. I do not know whether my return is proper, for I confess my ignorance in military affairs. But if it is wrong, should be obliged to you for a hint of it, that my next may be more perfect.

I am with great respect & esteem
your Excellency's mo obed Ser't.,
ALLEN JONES.
