[From Executive Letter Book.]

Philadelphia, Oct. 10th, 1779.


On the 26th of June last I had the honor of transmitting under cover to your Excellency fifteen Copies of the Journals of Congress, dated from the 1st January, 1779, to the 5th June, by Col. Long's Wagons. On the 15th July sent 15 Copies, dated from the 5th to the 19th of June, by an Express.

Mr. Burke took with him 15 Copies, dated from the 19th June to the 26th of July, and I now send by the Express 15 Copies, dated from the 26th of July to the 20th of August.

I doubt not your Excellency will participate in sending communications which I have made to Messers. Penn & Burke and to Genl. Rutherford & Locke, which leaves me nothing to add,

But that I have the honor to be,
With the highest esteem and regard, Sir,
Your Mo. ob. huml. Serv't,
