To the Rev˙ SAMUEL LANGDON, D˙D˙, to be communicated to the Committee at CAMBRIDGE.

HONOURED SIR: The Committee of Portsmouth having detected the enclosed letter, have thought proper to transmit a copy to you by way of caution, as we have heard that James Hendersonhas been traveling about the country lately to gain intelligence; and lest he might be the cause of more mischief to the American cause, we pray he may be prevented.

We have some cannon, with good carriages, of twenty-four and thirty-two pounders; if you need them, please to signify, and we will send them,

We are, with cordial esteem, Sir, your most humble servants, the Committee of Safety at Portsmouth, per their order.

GEORGE GAINES.

Copy of the above to be transmitted to the Committee of Supplies.
