Stewart's Troop of Light Dragoons

Dear Sir,

I wish with your permission to augment the provincial Light Horse-men employ'd on this Island to Twenty or Twenty four, men, exclusive of the Officers appointed to Command them.

They consist at present of Twelve, & I am happy to report, that they are all very smart young men fit for any Service they may be Ordered upon-

Mr. STEWART who has the Charge of them is a very diligent attentive Spirited man, worthy of notice;

I really think they may be of great Service during the Course of the Campaign;- if the proposed Augmentation meets with your Approbation, I shall endeavour to effect it as soon as possible.

I have the honour to be with the greatest Respect

Dear Sir
Yours Sincerely

Staten Island
29th March 1778

P.S.- In case you may want to speak to Mr STEWART concerning the Light horsemen under his Charge, I have sent this letter by him-

[Sir Henry CLINTON]

University of Michigan, William L. Clements Library, Sir Henry Clinton Papers, Volume 32, item 31.
