Honl Richd Yates
My Friend Capt. Niccolls the [illegible] of this place has been urged by his Many Friends to raise a Cavelry Company to go into immediate service as one of the Regements recently accepted by the Genl Govt.
I know of no one more acceptable to be entrusted with the [illegible] as Commanding of a Company
than Captain Niccolls.
He will explain particulars to you -
From a long acquaintance with him, I can say that any statements he may make you can rely on
Very respectfully yours
