Wilmington, Feby. 19th, 1780.

Sir:

I make no doubt but E'er this you have been Informed of the many Obsticles that has Tended to the Impedering my March to the Southward. I have at Length reachd. Wilmington and Expect (without some Unforeseen Accident) to be in Chas. Town in Ten days.

The accounts from the Southwards are so Vague that it will be needless to mention them, as you must undoubtedly have a more authentic one before this reached you than I am able to give.

Am, with the Highest Esteem,
Your Excellencie's Most Obt. Humble Servt.,
JAMES HOGUN, B. G.

[Endorsed]
