Your account of Rugeley vexed me, although it did not surprise me. I think he must be a traitor, or he would have come away when you desired him. I will have an inquiry made into his conduct, and would have his negroes secured, as that will be the only forfeiture we shall probably get from him, ...
Yours most sincerely,
