Letter from General Heath to New-York Committee of Safety

v5:766

GENERAL HEATH TO NEW-YORK COMMITTEE OF SAFETY.

New-York, April 2, 1776.

SIR: It appears necessary that some persons who, it is said, are aiding and assisting our unnatural enemies with provisions, and even recruits, should be detected and secured. I therefore request that, with the greatest secrecy, you would furnish me by eleven o' clock this day with three or four guides, well knowing the houses and persons of one Justice Hulet and Thomas Cornel, of Rockaway, (Long-Island;) Isaac Denton, of Hog-Island Inlet, and one Lieutenant Thomas Hulet, whose place of abode I do not know.

I am, sir, with respect, your most humble servant,

W˙ HEATH.

To the Chairman of the Committee of Safety of New-York.
