To Mr˙ HOPE MILLS, Jailer of QUEEN' S County

SIR: You are hereby dewed to deliver into the hands of my Lieutenant Cornell and Sergeant Hutchings, the body of Thomas Wooley, delivered in your custody agreeable to my warrant to you directed Saturday night last.

Given under my hand, this the 6th of May, 1776, in the District of Cow-Neck, Great-Neck, &c˙

JOHN SANDS, Captain.

Mr˙ Hope Mills examined and saith: The reason why he did not confine Thomas Wooley was, that he doubted the Captain' s authority to give him such order, and that the Sheriff disapproved of it.

In the presence of me,


JAMAICA, May 8, 1776.
