[From Executive Letter Book.]

Charles Town August 3d 1778.

Sir:

The Bearer, Baron de Bonstetien, who came from France to this place, in his way to Philadelphia, with a view of offering his services in the Military Line, to Congress was recommended to me, by a principal House at Nantes, as an officer of experience and merit. He requests that I would make this recommendation known to you, and therefore I give you this trouble. I have the honor to be with respect and esteem Sir,

Your mo. ob. Servt.
J. RUTLDEGE.
