JOHN COWPER TO THE COUNCIL AT HALIFAX.

Tarborough, July 30th, 1776.

Gentlemen:

Captain Anderson informs me that Cannon are Wanting for the Row Galleys now building at So. Quay. I take the Liberty to inform you I have one laying at Bath Town, but whether a 12 or 18 Pounder, I can’t really say. She is not under 12. She is a piece that came out of the same ship as those Captain Anderson is directed to move from Ocracoke. If she will answer the purpose I will deliver her to your Order, or observe any directions you may please to give me about her. The price I submit to your determination; and am Gentlemen,

Your most Obt. Hmble. Ser’t,
JOHN COWPER.
