COL. NICHOLAS LONG TO GOV. ABNER NASH.

Halifax, June 27th, 1780.

To His Excellency Abner Nash, Esq., Newbern.

Sir:

Inclosed is a Letter from Genl. Rutherford respecting Col. Dunn & others. Dunn and two more appeared with the Sheriff, and upon examination & no proof appearing against them, and your not coming here according to expectation, have suffered the two to return. Dunn is still here at large, but appears once in a day or two, and will continue so to do till I hear further from you.

Col. Washington arrived here last week.

With love I am, Sir,
Your most obedt. Humble Servt.,
NICHOLAS LONG.
