Letter from General Ward to the Massachusetts Congress


As there are many that are, and others that ought to be engaged in the service, absent from the camp, I should be very glad if Congress would take such steps as they in their wisdom may judge best, to influence or oblige the Towns to send back to camp such as have left it without leave, that have received the Colony' s money, and such as have not engaged, but ought to be. Nearly a whole company from Bradford, not being mustered and sworn, have left us without leave. I am, Sir, your most humble servant,


To the Honourable James Warren, Esquire, President of the Provincial Congress sitting at Watertown.
