Joshua Lockwood represents that "in 1782 when Powder Ball and Medicine cou’d not be procur'd from other Quarters he did supply your Army from the British Garrison at the risque of life and fortune." Lockwood notes that he also sent his son and "five hands" to deliver "Goods for the Army to the amount of upwards of six Thousand pounds Sterling" and that during that expedition "a negroe fellow of your Petitioners fell overbor'd and was drowned, which slave your Petitioner cannot replace for one Hundred Guineas." Lockwood therefore prays "this Honorable House to take his loss into consideration and grant him such relief as they think meet."
