4 Muster Rolls sent by George W Polk






    
    
    "The enclosed sheets are exact copies of the 4 Muster Rolls sent by George W. Polk 
    or, his attorney, to prove the truth of his claim that Charles was a Captain, and not 
    merely a Lieutenant, as the North Carolina Rolls seemed to indicate."
    
    The rolls are much disfigured, and show signs of careless handling before they were 
    sent to the Department, Etc.  The names have been spelled as in the original, Etc.
    
    Dr. The Province of North Carolina
    To Capt. Charles Polk and Company of foot for services Done.
