July 21st, 1780.

Dear Sir:

At length I have obtained a Flagg of Truce in order to have my dear Mrs. Harrington, and your two little nieces conducted to Salisbury with the permission of the Commanding Officer of the British Forces at the Cheraw Hill. I know your disinterested friendship for me, needs not to be reminded, that it is possible You may be of some service to Mrs. Harrington on this occasion.

May happiness ever attend you & yours, and be assured any thing that may be in the small circle of my power I shall readily and at all times contribute to continue or complete that happiness.

With my most respectful Compliments to your Wife and love to the four little Ones,

I am, My Dear Sir, Yours unalterably,
