- Vol. 1 - 1781 or 1782. - To the Worshipful Court of Augusta County, the petition of the sundry inhabitants in the bounds of Captain Long's Company of Militia humbly showeth:
- That your petitioners, while headed by Captain Christian, and since headed by Captain Long, then enjoyed the greatest tranquility, but now likely to he clouded by the loss of so noble an officer by a mere delusion.
- The most of us can, and will (if called upon), undertake to declare on oath that Captain Long behaved himself at the Battles of Hot Water and Jamestown as a good soldier and a noble officer. As to his conduct at York we cannot pretend to say farther than from the most authentic accounts that we could collect he had not that fair play that a true citizen ought to have had. From which motives induces us to believe, and truly hope, your worships will, when you come to look at the affair, reinstate him in his post, that we may continue our old rank, as we have ever been faithful subjects, contributed every thing in our power for the benefit of the States, turned out cheerfully our quota of men on every occasion.
- Therefore, as your worships is the only door we are to go through to justice, humbly hope you will recommend him to his Excellency, the Governor, which will prevent us from falling from our old rank, to wit, the second in the Battalion to the youngest, and your petitioners shall, as in duty bound ever pray, &c &c.
