Mr. Benjamin Clifton an Inhabitant of this State as I am well informed, has applied to me for a Certificate, as to Capt. Boon's being legally qualified, I can inform your Excellency that Thos. Boon is a Captain in the Northampton Regiment, commanded by Col. Wm. Eaton & qualified agreeable to the Laws of this State. The above Clifton has been a Schoolmaster in this State for several years last past. I am sorry to inform you that this is not the only instance of such behaviour of the Virginians draughting the Inhabitants of this State. I wish their Government was informed of it, as it really has a very bad tendency.
