King's American Dragoons
Thompson to Chipman

Camp Cow Neck 20th June 1782


As I mean to Recruit in good Earnest I shall leave TARBELL in Town as well as FULTON- He will of course want money and you must advance it- But not without his accounting to you for the manner in which it is expended.

Great care will be absolutely necessary in this business; my orders are that no Recruit gets more than one, or at most two Guineas at present; the rest will be punctually paid.

No man is to be paid the whole of the five Guineas offered for bringing a Recruit 'till the Recruit has been Inspected and has actually joined the Regt.

I should think Ten or fifteen Guineas in advance to TARBEL would be sufficient in present, and if he is successful and accounts properly for that you will let him have more.

Let him apply to Capt. FULTON and he will give him proper form for making returns of his Recruiting Expences-

We must do everything methodically.

I am, Dear CHIPMAN,
Very Sincerely Yours,

P.S. If any difference should Arise between FULTON and TARBEL the later will return to the Regt. Quere ? Would it not be better for him to go to King's Bridge or Morrisania ?
