I rec'd Y'r Let'r of the 25th. You are strongly recomended to the Comittee, and I hope they will allow you something handsome. I have no Money, hav'g advanc'd a great deal of my own for the Country, w'ch as yet I cannot receive. I sent You [£]120 by Jenkins, w'ch I hope will be sufficient for the pres't. I thank You for the Copy of the Speech, &c. Mr. Montour's Salary from y's Colony will rem'n for some Time longer. What You mean, y't a few Days will give You rest from Y'r Fatigue, I know not, unless You intend to leave the Army. Whatever you determine, be assured my good Wishes always attend You, and I am, Dear James,

Y'r affect. h'ble serv't.
