Letter from Governour Trumbull to the New-York Provincial Congress


"SIR: I received your letter of the 27th of June last, respecting a quantity of a necessary article which was forwarded by you. I immediately took care to make the necessary provision for its being sent on the way to the place of its destination, where no doubt it has safe arrived before this.

"Mr˙ James Dean, the bearer of this, is a young gentleman who has lately returned from a mission among the Tribes of Indians in Canada. He appears to have made some careful observations of the state of that Country, and is able to give some important intelligence. I take the liberty to recommend him to your notice, that he may communicate his information for your use.

"I am, with great truth and regard, Sir, your most obedient humble servant,


"Hon˙ P˙ V˙ B˙ Livingston."
