(Council of Safety to Gen. Ashe.)

We lament that an Action of Genl Moores, which we make no doubt sprung from Humanity alone should have been productive of such dangerous & alarming Consequences. We again conjure you for your Country's sake, and for your own Honour, to promote unanimity between the Officers and Soldiers of the Regular army and Militia.
