Letter from Colonel Howe to the Virginia Convention

v4:474

EXTRACT OF A LETTER FROM COLONEL HOWE TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE VIRGINIA CONVENTION, DATED DECEMBER 28, 1775.

I am at present, sir, so indispensably engaged, that I have not time to be so particular as I could wish, had I any thing of importance to communicate; but, except some salutes from the men-of-war, matters remain just as they did when I wrote you last. No effectual steps have been taken in respect to the exchange of prisoners, for which the enclosed copies of letters between Lord Dunmore and myself will, I hope, account in such a manner as to leave me, in the opinion of your honourable body, free from, blame.
