Letter from John Smith to General Washington

v4:536

JOHN SMITH TO GENERAL WASHINGTON.

Providence, January 1, 1776.

SIR: Agreeable to your desire, to his Honour the Governour, what blankets could be collected in this town, are now sent you by Mr˙ Hale, who will give you the cost of them. The number sent is one hundred and eighty-two. Am sorry the number is so small, though believe that a quantity might be collected in the country towns in some little time. If you think it needful, please to let me know, and I will endeavour to procure them.

I am, sir, your very humble servant, JOHN SMITH.

To His Excellency General Washington.
