GEN. A. LESLIE TO LORD CORNWALLIS.

Portsmouth, Virginia, Novr. 4th, 1780.

My Lord:

I have been here near a week establishing a Post. I wrote to you to Charles Town, and by another Messenger by Land. I can't hear for a certainty where you are; I wait your orders. The bearer is to be handsomely rewarded if he brings me any note or mark from your Ldship.

A. L.
Directed, Lord Cornwallis.
