EARL CORNWALLIS TO SIR HENRY CLINTON.


Camp at Manigolds, May 19, 1780.

(Extract.)

Sir:

I received very early this morning the favour of your letter by Lieutenant-colonel Innes, to which the letter I had the honour of sending to you yesterday by Major Dansey will serve as an answer. I can only add that I have received no intelligence whatever of reinforcements coming to the enemy from the Northward, or of their being in force in this province.
