Stephen Moylan to William Watson



Cambridge, November 17, 1775.

SIR: Captain Coit complains of the uneasiness the men are under, and as the only chance there is of taking any prize is his being out at this time, the General consents to his getting men at Plymouth, which, he says, he can readily do. If he can procure them, give him every forwardness you can. He says six weeks' provision will be necessary, and that he must have a spare pilot, in case of a prize. For God' s sake indulge him, and if he has misinformed his Excellency about getting the men, let us know it immediately, that we may govern ourselves accordingly.

I am, Sir, your most humble servant,

STEPHEN MOYLAN, Sec' y pro tem.

To William Watson, Esq˙, Plymouth.
