Letter from William Sharpe to Cornelius Harnett

Volume 22, Page 748

FROM WM. SHARP TO CORNELIUS HARNETT.

Salisbury, Friday evening, 19th July, 1776.

Sir:

When the express meets you please to break open my letter directed to Brigadier Jones which will inform the news and you’ll thereby see the necessity of writing yourself and urge the hastening of the powder.

I hope to get home to-morow evening and set out next morning to Genl. Rutherford on the frontiers and thereby get as circumstantial an account of matters as possible and return to Salisbury.

My best compliments to the Gentlemen with you, Sir,
Your most Obedt. Humble Servant,
WM. SHARP.
