dc.description.abstractLetter to Captain Hamilton, Niagara, from Geo. Hamilton, Canborough. The writer states that he has just learned that “your infernal dragoons” at Canborough are in his stables there, without “leave or licence”. He has learned that W.H. Merritt has been up in that quarter and presumes that they have been directed by him. He asks that these youths be recalled instantly and fined to pay for the damage they have done, in order to avoid a formal complaint against them to General Sheaffe. An added note states that James is new with Robert and is likely to receive a commission in Roberts Company as 2nd Lieut. As he is not allowed to go any distance from his post, he asks that the writer persuade James to ride to Canborough to get the rafts down. He was not able to do this as James is in Company with Mr. Clark. He urges the writer to write to James. He adds that Robert mentioned that he wanted to speak to James about appointing him executor, August 1812.en_US
