To Aaron Ogden, 22 June 1799
New York June 22d. 1799
I have lately received a letter from one Revell Elton, stating, that an Apprentice of his, by the name of Charles Bunn, has enlisted into Captain Marles’ Company at Burlington, and demanding his discharge, you will therefore please to examine into the facts and if true have the man restored.
With great consideration I am Sir Yr. obedt. servt.
