Extract of a Letter dated QUEBECK, APRIL 27th, 1775, from JOHN MCCORD to Lieutenant JAMES PETTEGREW, of the Tenth Regiment.

"We are impatient for the Packet; there are rumours here of bad news; have heavy fears for our friends at Boston on both sides the question. I pray God to grant peace on almost any terms. The blood of British subjects is very precious; would gladly hope a method will still be found out to prevent the spilling of any."
