Richmond Oct. 5th,1787
Dear Howell
Mrs. Williams has again applied to me for
the Certificates due her, for the care of an Artillery
Man of Harrisons late Regt. I have written to you
on the subject as fully as I now can and as I observed
you will find C.W. placed to the name of the [ Matry, ?]
from whose Estate the Debt is due, altho' it will
be Strike-through text but a trifle it will be of much use to Mrs.
Williams, and I must therefore request of you as one
whom I think is every Ready to serve the needy
that you will be at a little pains and trouble to
accomplish my Wish, do also think of and do what
you can in Respect to John Jones's certificates Colonel
Carrington can tell you that the late husband of the
applicant was not him who deserted - In a Complyance
with these two Requests you will not only serve the
concerned but rid me of frequent unnecessary
applications. _____I am &c. A Dunscomb

J Howell Esqr.
