Petition #11282401


James McCrory contends that "he is Justly entitled to pay for Three years service" rendered during the American Revolution. He admits that he presented his account to officials, who told him "the account was Just" but could not be paid "in consequence of the [scarcity] of money in the Treasury." McCrory states that said officials "proposed giving me a Negro with one Hand burned off for my account" to which he replied "I would [rather] have nothing as have him and I then left there not knowing that there was any way that I could get my pay." The petitioner therefore prays "his case may be taken into consideration by your honourable Body and you cause your Humble Petitioner to be Payed his Just right."
