[From Executive Letter Book.]

Newington, 2d June, 1777.


Herewith you will receive a list of the prisoners as ret'd by Gen. Jones certified, with the substance of a letter of credence at foot. I hope it will answer the purpose intended, and that you will deliver your prisoners safe; and also that you may arrive at head quarters in time to reap some of the laurels which in that quarter of the United States await the brave, and thereby render your country that service, which I as one of its inhabitants most ardently wish you may, as well for your own honor as her happiness.

Believe me to be, dear Capt.,
Yr. Fr'd & obed. serv't.,
R. C.
Capt. Cosmo Medici.
