v4:158

COLONEL MOYLAN TO WILLIAM BARTLETT.

Cambridge, December 2, 1775.

SIR: It being now under consideration of Congress the mode of disposing of such vessels and crews as are taken in supplying the enemy, it is his Excellency' s pleasure that Captain Hunter and his crew return to you; that their private adventure be given them, with liberty to dispose thereof as they think proper, and that they be treated with all humanity due to fellow-citizens in distress. If you think proper, you may let them live on board the vessel until further orders. Your attention and activity give much pleasure to the General, which he desires me to inform you of.

I am, with great regard, sir, your most obedient servant,

S˙ MOYLAN.

To Wm˙ Bartlett, Esq˙, Agent for the Brigantine Nancy.

To Captain John Glover, the same.
