Serjeant
William Rogers

 I beg to recommend that [Joseph Jenkins have his] pay raised again in consequence of [his] good conduct.

[He] is a most valuable man as long as he gets no chance to drink.  As a surveyor is competant.  He is very intelligent and this is what I employ him for.  As a good and obediant soldier he does not shine so much, especially when under Serjt. Rogers, for whom he entertains, I think, a sort of contempt or perhaps, not quite so strong a feeling, say, ridicule.
