Opinion on the memorial of James Ingram

London October 1lth 1787.

I am favored with your Letter of the 24th Ultimo transmitting to me for my opinion by desire of Lord SYDNEY the Memorial and Certificates of James INGRAM, formerly a Captain of the Augusta Volunteers in Georgia, praying to be allowed half pay or a military Pension.

In answer to which I have the honor to inform you that Mr. INGRAM's Commission having been given by the Governor of a Province, and no proofs appearing that it ever had the Sanction of the Commander in Chief, I am of opinion he cannot be allowed half pay; but as his Services are strongly certified, and as he has suffered by the Event of the War I think his case deserves some consideration.

I have the honor to be
Your most obedient and
Most humble Servant
Adjt. Genl. No. Am.

Evan NEPEAN Esqr.

Great Britain, Public Record Office, Treasury, Class 1, Volume 650, folio 162.
