Dear Sir

The inclosed, as you may suppose, requires the utmost dispatch—There were some time ago relays of Expresses stationed between Govr Jefferson and the president of Congress—If that Chain is yet kept up, it will be the speediest conveyance—If it is not, His Excellency requests you to send off a trusty Messenger immediately with the letter and give him orders upon the Quarter Masters on the Route for a change of Horses and of Men if necessary. I am Yr most obt and hble Servt

T. Tilghman
