I received your letter of 29th, Ulto., and observe what you say respect the peculiarity of Capt. Hinson's situation.
By a late resolve of the Continental Congress the inhabitants of Bermuda are declared to be in the same situation with the other Subjects of Great Britain and consequently all the Principles of War must extend to them. But as Capt. Hinson was brought into this State previous to that resolve, and has been since detained by the Course of Business he will be permitted to depart with his vessel but cannot be allowed to carry any Cargo whatever.
