Capt. Ramsay will Deliver to your order Twenty-one British Prisoners, which I have this Day delivered to him to Convey to Hillsborough. Those prisoners were part of one hundred & three that was taken in flats on the River P. D., on their Passage from the Cheraw Hill to George Town, part of which was sent to Hillsborough by Capt. Arnold, and part was so sickly that they were not able to march, and was left at Long Bluff Gaol in Cheraw District, South Carolina (which I am afraid is released). Those twenty-one is part of thirty-nine that was Intended to be sent by Capt. Tho's, but on hearing the unhappy Defeat of Genl. Gates, his Guard left him, and he gave them into the charge of Col. Jarvis; but they not being able to march so fast as his men Retreated, he was under the Necessity of leaving them on the Rout near Coles Bridge, at which place I came up with them and took them into my charge.
