War of 1812 [2]
York (U.C)
April 29th, 1813
My Dear Wife, It is with sincere satisfaction that I inform you of my being well after a pretty severe engagement. Our Captain has lost his leg, Lester Irvine is badly wounded and poor Hazeltine. They will I expect recover, at least I hope so. I did intend to have resigned after the engagement but now it is impossible in consequence of the wounded officers.

For more particulars I refer you to the letter I write my Brother Andrew which I have directed him to show you if you wish to see it.

My love to my dear children and be particular with my boy. Love to all enquiring friends, Henry Groff in particular who I shall never forgett

My love to the boys. I shall probably write you again in about 8 or 10 days. Our brave general Pike was killed in the engagement.

Except for yourself and Children my sincere love and esteem.

Mrs Mary Ann Warner

Thomas Warner
Ensign Balt. Volt.
