Chambly 9th August 1776

Parole St. Christopher                                                         CS/ Oxford

It cannot but give general Satisfaction to the Army to know that the whole Gang of Deserters from Colonel MACLEANS Regiment, who thought to redeem their Perfidy to the Rebels, in whose Cause they once before engaged, by becoming a second time Traitors to their King and their lawfull State have been taken by our out Posts and are safe in Custody, except one who received too honorable a Death from the Firelock of one of his Guards whom he attempted to Murder after he was his Prisoner.

It appears by Brigadier General FRASERs Report that the Conduct of the Detachment employed in this pursuit has been truely examplary.

Lieut. General BURGOYNE takes this occasion to express his fulest Approbation, and thanks to Lieut. NORMAN of the 20th Regiment who Commanded it.

And General FRASER will please to direct a Dollar to be given to each man of the party in Consideration of the Activity perseverance and Spirit, with which they Seconded those Principles in their Officer.
