War Office June 19th 1782
I do myself the honor to transmit Your Excellency a resolve of Congress respecting the Flags to be furnished by the British Commander in Chief for conveying such of the exiled Citizens of Carolina as wish to return, and lists of the families who are to be the subjects of this resolve, with the ports they wish to go to. I have the honor to be, with profound respect, Your Excellency’s most obedient servant.
