From Governor Henry.

Williamsburg, 30 October, 1777.

DEAR SIR,

My great anxiety for the success of the American arms under your command, induces me to trouble you with this. Accounts from the camp are so various and contradictory that I know not what to rely on. If the weight of public affairs, under which you have so long labored, will permit, a few lines will be most welcome to me.

Although it seems impossible to enlist Continental recruits here, yet the zeal of our countrymen is great and general in the public cause. I wish some proper exertions of that spirit were wisely directed to the general good. A hint from you may lead to something important, at a time like this, when most people seem at a loss to fix on the most effectual means of prosecuting the war vigorously. The Assembly is now sitting, and I shall take pleasure in communicating to them any matter you judge proper for their attention.

I beg leave to assure your Excellency, that with the most unfeigned respect, and the highest regard, I am, dear Sir,

Your most obedient servant,

PATRICK HENRY.
