Halifax Town, May 9th 1775.

Dear Sir,

This is to inform you that I shall attend at your next Hillsborough County Court When I should be glad you will contrive and pay me the £60 which you got from the Sheriff of Orange.

We have just recd some very shocking accounts from Boston. The Regulars and the Bostonians Have Had an Engagement, the former were Intirely defeated with the loss of 1200 men, and 800 taken prisoners. This you may rely on as a fact, as we Have had very authentic accounts.

I am Dear Sir with compliments to Mrs Burke,
Your most obedient Humble servant,
HENRY MONTFORT.
