To His Excellency Gov. Nash, Newbern.
I did myself the honour to write to you some time ago from Cross Creek; since then I have not been favoured with a letter from you.
The Bearer of this, Capt. De Treville, who is in the South Carolina Division of the Continental Army, has pressed me for a Letter to you. I have a Slender acquaintance with this Gentleman, but have always heard Him Called a Zealous, diligent and good Officer. He is very Intelligent, & can give you a good deal of information respecting the situation of So. Carolina. He has a Number of their Publick Papers. I beg to present my best respects to Mrs. Nash.
