Newington, 2d June, 1777.

Dr. Sir:—

Your favor of the 31. ultimo I have just rec'd. and agreeable thereto I have sent a list of the names furnished me by Capt. Medici, certified according to order of Congress, with something like a letter of credence at foot of it. I laid this case, or rather the case of the prisoners, before the Assembly. What they did in it, I know not, as I did not receive their answer, nor have been able to procure a copy of their Journals. As I know not of their taking any further order in the matter, I have complied with the resolutions of Congress as near as I can recollect, for the Journal of that Body I have not by me at present.

I am with great esteem and regard,
Dr. sir, your most obed. servant,
Nicho. Long Esqr. Qr. M. Gen.
