ADS, DLC:GW. Dinwiddie’s clerk, William Withers, may have enclosed this in Dinwiddie to GW, 23–27 May 1757.

1After the Virginia Regiment was reduced earlier this month (see Dinwiddie to GW, 16 May 1757, two letters), a number of these lost their captaincies and resigned, as did several of the junior officers in the weeks following. See GW’s List of Junior Officers in the Virginia Regiment, Enclosure I, GW to Dinwiddie, 12 June 1757.
