Rocky hill New Jersey 8th October 1783
I do myself the honor to transmit to your Excellency, a Letter from Mr John Campbell, together with a Schedule of sundry papers which he alledges were taken from him when made Prisoner and deliverd to Major De Peyster at Detroit, and were never returned.
I can have no doubt, but that your Excellency will on receipt of this Letter, cause every measure to be taken which may be most likely to restore to Mr Campbell the property thus taken, and which, tho so important to him, cannot benefit any other individual. I have the honor to be Sir Your Excellency’s Most Obedient and Most humble Servt
