Turbutt Francis to John Hancock


Pawlus Hook, opposite New-York, September 6, 1775.

SIR: I received this letter on Saturday last, just as I was leaving Albany, after completing the business with the Six Nations. As I must go on slowly, I think it proper to send it by the post; but I hope to be in Philadelphia by Sunday next, at farthest, and on Tuesday to be able to present to the Congress an account of our proceedings.

I have the honour to be, with respect, your obedient servant,


To Hon˙ John Hancock, Esq˙, President of Congress.
