Disappointed that he was not given the opportunity to command a local Volunteer Corps. Understands Earl Fortescue is supporting Prole instead. Capt Horden believes that Earl Fortescue has been misled about his capabilities by Mr Webber who has 'levelled his mallicious darts at me in so many shapes...' Reports that he can raise a good number of men and has used his own money to do this. Asks again that he should be considered.
