LT. COL. H. MURFREE TO BRIG. GEN. SUMNER.


Colo. Brickells, 24th Febr’y., 1782.

Dear General:

The day after we left your house Mr. Garrard was taken very sick, and continues so yet, which prevented our coming to your house the day before yesterday. I should be much obliged to you to let me know by the bearer when you set off for Camp. Mr. Garrard, I believe, will not be able to go on with us.

I hope you & family are well. My Compliments to Capt. Fawn.

And am, Dear General,
Your mo. Obdt. St.,
H. MURFREE.

N. B.—Mr. Garrard wants a vial of drops he left at your house.
