There a number of men that belong'd to Col Spencer's Col. Lee Genl Hazins of the Invalid Regimt's that were Citizens of Jersey, whose ac-
counts have been liquidated, but for the want of the proper returns, I am not able for the present to ascertain who they are if this can be done you may rest assured the residue shall be forwarded those - now sent with the former include the whole line as they stood when the army was discharged: You will exceedingly oblige me by a line acknowledging the receipt of the registers.

His Excellency
Wm. Livingston
