My last was of the 14th instant, advising you of my crossing the St. Lawrence, and being before Quebec ; since which I have not had the pleasure of hearing from you. I then informed you of my situation and prospects. Fearing that may have miscarried, I have thought proper to despatch the bearer, a merchant of Quebec, and particular friend of mine, who has been kind enough to offer his service, and will inform you more fully than in my power to write. I am very anxious to hear from you, and much more to see you here. I am, dear Sir, with great esteem, Your obedient, humble servant,
- Benedict Arnold
