From James Pearson

Wilmington [Del.] 30 October 1775. Requests an appointment in the army.


Pearson was apparently unsuccessful in obtaining a Continental commission. He may be James Pearson (c.1735–1813), who served as a commissary of military stores in Philadelphia 1779–80 and a captain of the city’s artillery in 1780.
