Letter from General Thomas to the Massachusetts Congress


Boston, June 23, 1775.

It is the desire of twenty-five persons from the country, that were taken prisoners at Charlestown last Saturday, and many of them dangerously wounded, that as they are in great want of fresh provisions for their comfort, they would have you go to Weymouth, or any other Town in your neighbourhood, and recommend to the good people there to send them some mutton and other provisions as may be suitable for them.
