Upham to Taylor

Fort Franklyn Lloyds Neck July 7, 1782.

Dear Taylor

Soon after my Arrival at this Post (of Honor) or Danger or what you may please to term it, some Cows &c were brought from the Connecticut Shore- of which Flock I purchased two Cows & two young Cattle- they are now at Pasture for the Money shall draw on you when called upon- they are said to be well purchased-

I have sent two Recruits to York to be inspected their Names ROWLAND and WHITE, if a proper Certificate from Mr. CHIPMAN that they are mustered shall be shewn You I must request You to advance for me Twelve Guineas being the Bounty- Capt. ANDERSON will call on you for that Purpose-

I find myself plunged into a much more extensive Field of Business than I had foreseen- I shall submit to all that Heaven has allotted me with Chearfulness.

You will be so good as to inform me on what Terms you will hold yourself liable to advance Bounties to my Recruits to the amount of one Hundred Guineas if called for from the 24 June last to the 24 Augt.

the Premium you propose shall be paid by my Recruiting Officers whether the Money be advanced or not & the Money advanced shall, instantly on being recd. by me on the Abstract, be replaced & paid to you-

be so good as to let me know your Pleasure on this subject- [the next line is crossed out]

I am, dear sir, your
ever obliged & most grateful Friend
