[From MS. Records in Office of Secretary of State.]
Letter from General Robert Howe to the Council of Safety.


Captain Cellcock will Visit your Colony on the Recruiting Duty, in the service of Georgia. The Necessity that Colony is under for that, its importance to the common cause and the Zeal it has shown in it, combine to give it a claim to every assistance of a sister Colony, which they can lend compatible with their own immediate interest; this will I doubt not induce you to serve them all in your Power. I have nothing further to add by Capt Cellcock as I shall write you fully by an Express.

I am with the greatest Respect Sir,
Your most Obt Servt

Charles Town, 2d August, 1776.
