Copy: Library of Congress

Passy, Augt. 25. 1780.

Dear Sir,

I have received your Favour of the 11th. Instant. I have only time by this Oportunity to enclose and send you the Receipts of the Capt. of the Cartel, for some English Prisoners I have lately releas’d.6 There were a Number sent before, of which I can not find at present the Receipt. I shall continue sending as they may arrive, in order to settle my particular Account honestly. But I still complain about the Boston Cartel People,7 and other Breakers of Parole. With great Esteem, I am, Dear Sir, &c.

M. Hodgson.
