Fearing lest a Letter which I had the honor of addressing to you near a Week past, by a Flag of Truce, should have miscarried, I take the present opportunity of presenting you with my best Wishes & Respects, & requesting you to forward to me my Servant, Horses and Cloaths. My Treatment has been humane, Politic & attentive from the British officers into whose Hands I have fallen, and my would bears as favorable an aspect as could be expected. Testimonies of sincere Esteem toward my Brother Officers, and I remain,

With Sentiments of Respect, Dear Sir,
Your most affecte. humble Servt.,
THOMAS PINCKNEY.
