to him to go into Charlestown. He has requested permission for that purpose from me, which I have given him so far as it is in my department, but have referred him to you for that permission which alone can be effectual.

He will be able to Satisfy you as to the importance of his business, and Integrity of his Intentions. From various accounts which I have received of him through many Gentlemen of Character and unquestioned veracity, I am persuaded he is a very worthy man and a good Member of Society, and that his family is a valuable Acquisition to this State.

I am, with the highest esteem and regard,
Your very Obdt. St.,
Genl. Greene.
