It appears to this committee that the petitioners were drafted from the militia of Culpeper to go to the frontiers near Pattison's Creek in Hampshire Co., under the command of Captain William Brown, and after being there some time in the winter season, and in want of necessaries, applied to their captain for leave to return home, who promised to discharge them if they would stay and build a fort, which the petitioners with the rest of the company finished, and at the end of 63 days returned home without any discharge from their captain.
Resolved, That the petitioners ought to be paid by the public for their said service,
The said resolution was read a second time and the question being put, that the House agree thereto, It passed in the negative.
