GENERAL NIXON TO GENERAL HEATH.

Camp Philipsborough, 17th November, 1776.

DEAR SIR: I received your favour of this day, together with Colonel Sargeant' s return, and shall endeavour to make the alteration in the returns, agreeable to your desire in your letter.

I have, dear sir, the mortification to inform you of the reduction of Fort Washington by the Ministerial troops yesterday, the particulars of which I have not as yet got.

I wish you health and prosperity, and am, with the greatest esteem, your very humble servant,

JNO˙ NIXON.

Major-General Heath,
