v3:772

GOVERNOUR COOKE TO MASSACHUSETTS ASSEMBLY.

Providence, November 19th, 1776.

GENTLEMEN: I enclose you a copy of a letter from Major-General Lee, which I received last night . As the contents are very important, I have no doubt of your paying the greatest attention to it. I have to request your Honours to give the necessary orders to the Militia in the southern part of your State to march to our assistance, in case of an attack, with all possible expedition, and for giving such other aid as shall be necessary.

This letter will be delivered you by Captain Topham, one of those brave men who were taken prisoners at Quebeck. I am, with every sentiment of esteem and respect, your Honours' most obedient and humble servant,

NICH' S COOKE.

General Court Massachusetts-Bay.
