GOV. A. NASH TO GENERAL GATES.

Hillsborough, September 7, 1780.

Sir:

I understand by the Bearer that the injury he complains of was committed by the Continental Troops; if so Sir I hope some method will be taken to redress this injury in your own way. With regard to plundering practised by the Militia, I expect the Assembly in a day or two will take effectual means to prevent such abuses; if they do not, I will cause them to be corrected by my own Authority.

I am, with the highest respect,
Dr. Sir, Yr. Obt. Servt.,
A. NASH.
