Claims & Memorials
Witness for Nicholas Welsh of North Carolina


I do hereby certify that having carefully perused the preceeding Memorial, I have found the circumstances therein recited to be perfectly true, as the Conduct of Mr. WELSH came under my immediate Cognizance from the Month of February 1779, until the period of Selling his Commission of Major in the Regiment which I had the honor to Command; which to my certain knowledge was from the laudable motive of relieving his family which was reduced to very exigent & distressing circumstances; And at the time of his being incited to that measure, no Idea or hope was entertained that the Provincials would receive Half pay: Wherefore, and from an entire conviction & belief of Mr Welsh having been actuated by the motives assigned, and from a perfect knowledge of his Zealous & faithful Services & extreme Sufferings, I do most humbly, & most earnestly Recommend him to the particular notice & favor of Government.

Signed,   Jno. HAMILTON, Commt.
