Autograph Document Signed "Green Clay"(1757 - 1828) and twice again in body of document adding his rank as "Brigr. Genl." 2pp., 13 1/8 x 7 7/8 in., [n. p.] 17 June 1815, being a fair copy of a general order he issued in Cincinatti on 9 April 1813 ordering "The Commandants of Regiments will cause to be made immediately a Regimental report of the men, who have failed to Join the Detachment; and those who have Deserted - specifying as near as practacable [sic] descriptions of their persons, & place of resi- dence Signed Green Clay Grigr. Genl." "The following is a transcript of my Order Book & Brigade report of Deserters & Delinquints [sic] from the Brigade of Kentucky Militia detached under the command of Brigadier Genl Green Clay the same being taken from reports of the adjutant of Col. Boswells Regiment and Serjant [sic] Majr. of the late Colo. Dudleys Regiment." Clay then lists the names of five deserters from Fort Meigs based on a report issued by Brigade Major Thoas H. Pindell "about the middle or last of May 1813" All were from "Capt. John Yanties Company". Included are the names of each deser ter, three simply listed as "delinquent"; another was "delinquent" but when deposed claimed that he was from Lincoln County; another was "delinquent" but also complained of "Rhumatism" [sic]. However "Abram Nicham" was clearly a "Deserter" who "run away to the State of Ohio." Clay concludes his transcript with the following observation: "As to having a private understanding with any Officer; or one Officer with another contrary to the Rules of the Army: the Duty of an officer and strict Honor the Idea is inadmissible: I know of no such thing." Light marginal wear and toning, usual fold else fine.
