|Captain Francis Kempt to James Winchester
|19 August 1813
|Kempt, Francis (fl. 1813)
|Kempt writes from a transport ship, which will be leaving early the following day. He will therefore be unable to visit Winchester and his fellow officers. Encloses "reasons for declining doing the General duty of an agent for Prisoners of War," as well as complaints by Col. Baestler and B. General Winder. Kempt characterizes their complaints as groundless, and asks for Winchester's comments. He warns that these two officers must attend the requisite meetings with him, or they will risk forfeiting their parole.
