Governor Dinwiddie to Governor Dobbs.

Jan'ry 29th, 1757.


Last night the enclos'd Packets came under my Care from Lord Loudoun. He desires my meeting him the 17th of next Mo. at Philadelphia, for w'ch place I intend (God willing) to set out next week. It is unlucky I had not more early Notice, as our Assembly was to meet in 14 days, but I must prorogue them to a further Day, whether My L'd desires Y'r Company there at that Time, I know not, but if he does, you will be strengthen'd in Time to comply. I'm greatly hurried, must therefore leave off.

With sincere respects I rema.
Y'r Ex'cy's most ob'd't, h'ble serv't.
