Letter from William Hooper to Sir [President of the Provincial Congress of North Carolina?]
Hooper, William, 1742-1790
November 06, 1776
Volume 10, Page 891


By some accident I omitted to inclose the Bill of Cloathing in the letter which it was intended to accompany, & herewith you will receive it. Nothing very material has occurred with respect to our Armies since I wrote you. As to the successes we have had in some small skirmishes with the Enemy I refer you to the late papers which I send to our Mr Hewes. Our Garrison were well and in good spirits at Ticonderoga the 24th. Carleton with his Army is at Crown Point, 15 miles from there.

I am Sir with great Respect,
Your obed. Hum. Ser.,

Nov. 6th, 1776, Philadelphia.
