DR. THOMAS BURKE FROM HON. HENRY LAURENS.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

York Town 30th April 1778.

Sir:

Within this inclosure you will receive the draught of a letter which you sent last night for my perusal.

If I were called upon to give evidence in the case, I should deliver my sentiment without bias or partiality. I might vary in some particulars from your account, nevertheless upon a fair comparison, I think your narrative would not appear to be uncandid, especially if any consideration should be had to its coming from the party most nearly affected.

I have the honor to be with great regard Sir, your obedient and most humble Servant.
HENRY LAURENS.
The honorable THOMAS BURKE ESQ.
