COL. NICHOLAS LONG TO GENERAL SUMNER.


May 25th, 1781.

Sir:

Inclosed is a letter sent you for your perusal and desire to know whether the twelve months men which I have taken as Artificers must continue or not; as the public works are much damaged, would wish to know by the bearer before I set them to work. I have employed some men as Waggoners which must be continued.

I am Sir,
Your Humble Servant,
NICHOLAS LONG, D. Q. M. G.

N. B. Please to return the letter inclosed by the bearer with your directions concerning the above &c.
