To Major General John Sullivan

Head Quarters at Keiths Decr 15th 1776

Dear Sir

About One OClock to day, I received your Letter of the 13th and sincerely regret with you, the unhappy fate of Genl Lee. I know his feelings upon the occasion, and I know the loss our Country must sustain in his Captivity. The Event has happened & I refer you to the several Letters which I had wrote him, & to one which now goes to Lord Stirling,1 & to my Lord himself who, I presume, is with you & who was fully possessed of my Ideas when he left me, for the measures you and he may Judge necessary to adopt.

Df, in Robert Hanson Harrison’s writing, DLC:GW; Varick transcript, DLC:GW.
