Head Quarters 18th June 1782
I have received your Excellency’s Favor of the 31st —of May—covering your Letter Addressed to Sir Guy Carleton.
As your Letter, with the Depositions which accompany it, contain everything that is to be said on the Subject, it is needless for me to impress it with any Observations of mine.
The Letter to Sir Guy is forwarded by a flag to N. York, and any Reply he may be pleased to commit to my Care, shall be transmitted to your Excellency by the first Conveyance. I am &c.
