WILLIAM DUTCHER TO NEW-YORK CONGRESS.

Phillipsborough, June 26, 1776.

GENTLEMEN: Having understood that there was a number of men to be raised in Westchester County for County duty; and whereas there are a number of men under my command that are as well equipped as any company in the country, and I think I can say with safety the best, and the men in general are all willing to enter in their country' s service if the gentlemen of the Provincial Congress think fit to employ them, as we have heretofore done a great deal of County duty when other companies have been left at home, and have never had any satisfaction for it, which also we never intend to make any demand of; however, we have, notwithstanding, been very illy used, for all the other companies have had powder and ball delivered to them, when we are left without any; so gentlemen, if you should be in want of us, you may let me know by the earliest opportunity, and you may depend upon it the men will be ready almost on the shortest notice; therefore, you must send up recruiting orders immediately. From your humble servant,

WILLIAM DUTCHER.
