Summary
Sir Guy Carleton (1724-1808) served as Governor of the Province of Quebec, Governor General of British North America, and commanded British troops in Quebec during the American War of Independence. He oversaw the evacuation of British forces, Loyalists, and freedmen from New York in 1783. The papers consist of two orders submitted in 1767 to paymasters at Montreal and Quebec for payment of troops; a letter to Sir William Johnson, Superintendent of Indian Affairs, discussing how to defeat French attempts to gain the loyalty of Indian tribes, and how to manage the concerns of Canadians; and several letters and documents, 1775 to 1790, relating to various official duties. Also present is an 1867 transcript from the Public Record Office entitled "State Papers, America and West Indies, Sir G. Carleton's Correspondence, No. 147." The original document dates from 1783.
