I beg leave to recommend the bearer of this Mrs. Miller to your Excellency assuring you that however inimical her husband may appear, she herself is a most deserving character. Mr. Miller went out of the State before the Declaration of Independence, and is now a merchant at New York. Mrs. Miller I understand has a notion of going to Bermuda with her property to avoid the forfeiture
I assure you sir any favor you can do her consistent with the laws and policy of the State will ever be considered as an obligation on myself. A gentleman from Virginia yesterday told me that he saw a person from the No'ward who says it may be relied on that the Canadians have acceded to the Confederacy with the 13 United States, and that their delegates are at Congress. I heartily wish this may prove true, and I do not think it improbable, as the British force in that part is almost annihilated.
