Witness for Stephen Holland of New Hampshire

I Certify that during the time I commanded His Majesty's Troops at Rhode Island, Captain Stephen HOLLAND of the late Prince of Wales's American Volunteers, rendered many great and important Services to Government with a number of men he had inlisted for a Corps to be formed in Consequence of His Excellency Sir Henry CLINTON's warrant, and of which he was to have had the Command. These men were Active under his directions, in distressing the Rebels and procuring intelligence--

That on the Evacuation of Rhode Island Capt. HOLLANDs prospects of compleating the said Corps ceased, and the men he had inlisted he turned over to the Prince of Wales's American Volunteers. I believe had not Rhode Island been evacuated at the time it was, Captain HOLLAND wou'd have compleated his Corps from his Interest and Influence in the Northern Provinces- and I am firmly persuaded Captain HOLLAND must have been at much expence in recruiting those men and engaging others for which he has not been since Indemnified.

Lieut. General

London 1 February 1786

Great Britain, Public Record Office, Treasury Office, Class 1, Volume 642, folio 243.
