Abstract

Contains a letter from William Mainwaring, Arundel, Hampton Road[s], to [Lieutenant Governor Francis Fauquier] regarding the proclamation of the governor offering a reward of twenty pounds to discourage deserters from His Majesty's ships. Mainwaring asks that the proclamation be altered so that the apprehender of the deserter is entitled to the reward.
