Thomas Jefferson Papers

To Thomas Jefferson from John Taylor, 15 April 1781

From John Taylor

Lancaster County, 15 Apr. 1781. Encloses “a list of the number of Men raised in this County for recruiting this States quota of Troops to serve in the Continental Army, likewise a particular number of each Division, and a return of the Militia but not so full as your last instructions required, as I have not recieved any returns from the Different Captains since.” The return of ammunition will show the “great need” of that article in a region “Constantly exposed to invasion.”

RC (Vi); signed: “John Taylor C[ounty] L[ieutenant] L[ancaster]”; endorsed.
