Richmond Nov 4th 1787

Dear Sir

Inclosed are the receipts for some of the certicates you have sent to Mr Dunscomb no 94,826, 94,827 and 94,82 - Doct Treyvant left a claim with Mr Dunscomb for his pay in 1783, he say, he was a prisoner and not exchanged until the General exchange of May 1783. I do not remember in what situation his claim has been considered or the cause of its not being admitted. The inclosed certificates he has desired may be forwarded as tending to support his claim, which is not admitted. I wish may be returned to me.

I am Sir with friendship yo

J Howell
