The Papers of General Nathanael Greene

From Lieutenant William Eppes,

Finds that NG's general orders of 18 January apply to him. He has claimed to be a captain because he was "Arrang' d as one" and because Col. William Davies ordered him to assume the rank in August 1780. If he "cannot be allow' d" a captaincy, he wishes to resign and prevent "further Dissatisfaction."[1]
