Rocky Hill 12th Sept. 1783


Your Letter of the 4th was received yesterday, but all the Generals Papers being packed for Transportation and at a distance from this place, it is totally out of my power to comply with your request—but I am directed by His Excellency to inform you, that so far as he can recollect of the Letter you have reference to, the Marquis spoke of you in the highest terms and recommended you as an Officer of the first merit. I am &c.

D. Cobb
