GENERAL GREENE TO GENERAL SUMNER.

Sept. 25th, 1781.

Dear Sir:

I have this moment received the confirmation of the disagreeable report prevailing of Governor Burke and sundry other persons being taken near Hillsborough. I beg you will get yourself in readiness to go into that State as soon as possible as I fear all things will get into confusion from this untoward event. Please to call and breakfast with me in the morning when we will confer more fully upon what is necesary to be done.

I am dear Sir your most Obedt. humble servant,
N. GREENE.
