From Major Henry Lee, Jr.
July 21st 79
The enemy again landed this morning on Stoney-point.
I conjecture this debarkation to be serious: as their baggage tents &c. are also on shore.
General Stirling’s brigade compose the present garrison; the General commands.1
The few wounded men left behind the other day, I have taken the liberty to send on board ship. They are received on the same terms & are to be conside[red] in the same point of view when exchanged, as those deliverd on the 17th inst.2
The enemy’s fleet upwards of forty sail still continue off Stoney-point. I have the honor to be sir with perfect respect Your Excellencys most ob. h: servt
