U.S. History

From Major-General Heath.

Newport, 26 July, 1780.

DEAR GENERAL,

By a variety of intelligence, from various quarters (all which agree) the enemy intend to make an attempt on the fleet and army of our great and good ally at this place. I have called for the neighbouring militia of Massachusetts, and the whole of this

State. I have also requested the Council of Massachusetts to send all the three months’ militia this way, except those of the counties of Hampshire and Berkshire. Whilst these are collecting, with the advice of the Marquis, I shall call on Governor Trumbull to send one thousand militia from the nearest towns of Connecticut, to rendezvous at Greenwich. I have the honor to be, with the greatest respect,

Your Excellency’s most obedient servant,

WILLIAM HEATH.

P. S. The fleet off the harbour, from their first appearance, have kept nearly the same station, to the eastward of Block Island.
