HUGH TINNEN TO DANL. MALLETT.

Hillsborough, Sept. 4, 1781.

Sir:

I am inform'd that you have obtain'd a pass for the purpose of carrying some Negroes to the Northward; for some reasons which occur to me I am induc'd to conceive an impropriety in granting that indulgence at presence, but that you may have no reason to complain of the indiscretion of Military Authority being exercised in this case, I shall immediately take the opinion of others whose province it is to judge of such Matters; in the meantime I hope you will make it convenient to Postpone your journey, otherwise I shall be under the necessity of Adopting Measures by no Means agreeable to.

Sir your very Humb. Servt.,
HUGH TINNEN.
Mr. Danl. Mallett.
