Gen. Woodford presents his most respectful compliments to His Excellency Gov. Nash, & requests the favour of him to have the inclosed letters sealed and forwarded to Virginia by the post or any express that may be going that way.
He has also to request that the Gov. will be pleased to order the post office at Newbern to be examined for Letters to the Virginia officers, and have them forwarded to this place. His present situation (he flatters himself) will apologize for the freedom he has taken.
