Letter from Robert H. Harrison to General Ward

v4:458

ROBERT H˙ HARRISON TO GENERAL WARD.

Cambridge, December 25, 1775.

SIR: I am commanded by his Excellency to inform you that he is very apprehensive that the troops in Boston, when the bay is frozen sufficiently hard for them to pass, will take the hay that is on the marsh unless it is removed. You will, therefore, be pleased to have notice given to the persons owning it to take it away and secure it immediately, or his Excellency will be under the necessity of having it burnt.

I am, sir, your most obedient, humble servant,

ROBERT H˙ HARRISON.

To Major-General Ward.
