GENERAL GATES TO GENERAL HARRINGTON.

April, 1781.

Dear Sir:

I have heard, by Accident, that you are at Mr. James Stroud's with your Slaves. I should be happy to see you at my House, and would come immediately to show you the way, but having a Cold am afraid to ride in the Rain. I shall expect you to Dinner, which will be ready at Two O'clock.

I am your Affectionate, Humble Servant,
HORATIO GATES.
General Harrington.
