LIEUT. JOHN NAIRNE TO MAJ. GENL. GATES.

October 29th, 1780.

Sir:

Being apprized by Majr. Butler of your kind intentions of allowing me to proceed within the British lines on Parole for the better recovery of my health, I hope you will pardon me making a request that my parole should be put in my possession, as I imagine I shall soon be in a condition to take the advantage of it, and am apprehensive that fortune, by depriving me of your presence, may rob me of your favorable intentions in my behalf.

I have the honor to be, Sir,
Your obliged humbl. Servant,
JOHN NAIRNE
Lieu. 71st Reg.
