That your Memorialist entered into the Army at South Carolina in 1776 that he raised two companies in different Regiments for His Majesty's service-

that at the disbanding of the Provincial Troops he was promised Lands in the river St. Johns, which by unforseen accidents has not yet been carried into execution-

He therefore prays your Excellency will be pleased to grant him Madamkiswick Island in said river and the remainder of such proportion of Lands, as your Excellency will be pleased to grant him and his Family on the river Saint Johns-

and your Memorialist as in Duty Bound shall ever pray
