Duke of Cumberland's Regiment
Montagu to Carleton

May 12th 1783


Understanding that amongst the British Prisoners lately arriv'd, there are Soldiers belonging to Absentee Regiments, I beg leave to apply to you, for Permission to engage any under the above description to join my Corps in Jamaica, paying to the Commg. Officers of such Regiments or their Agents, the Bounty money allow'd, by his Majesty for recruiting.

I have reason to believe my second Battalion now nearly compleat, and as I propose returning in a few days to Jamaica, shoud earnestly wish, thro your indulgence, to be enabled, to carry some Soldiers with me, as proofs of my attention to the orders I have receiv'd, and to shew that I have not been totally idle.

I shoud hope, Sr., as my sole view is for his Majesty's service, this request may meet with your Excellency's approbation.

I have the honor to remain
Your most obt
Hble Servant
