JOHN DICKERSON TO GENERAL SUMNER.

Nov. 20th, 1781.

Dear General:

You’ll receive Jesse Manly who has been deserted ever since General Greene was at Dan River; he enlisted with me and took the Oath and I delivered him to Captain Lytle for a Twelve Month. I should be glad you’d have him well taken care of for fear he should desert and be doing the same mischief again. Please to give Mr. John Dickerson a Receipt for him, and believe me to be your Friend, &c.,

JOHN DICKERSON.
