TO GOV. THOS. BURKE FROM GEN. NATH. GREENE.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Headquarters, February 5th, 1782.

Dear Sir:

Since you left this place Gen’l Leslie has demanded your immediate return. Enclosed is a copy of his letter and my answer by which you will see upon what footing the business rests. I expect to hear from him again in a day or two. Should he agree to the proposition that I have made, and exchanges go on again, I shall propose yours. But whatever may be the issue I will inform you freely.

I am with esteem,
Your most obedt. H’bl. Serv’t.,
NATH. GREENE.
