Philadelphia, 18 June, 1775.

MY DEAR,

THIS letter, I presume, will go by the brave and amiable General Washington. Our army will have a group of officers equal to any service. Washington, Ward, Lee, Gates, Gridley, together with all the other New England officers, will make a glorious council of war.

This Congress are all as deep as the delegates from the Massachusetts, and the whole continent as forward as Boston. We shall have a redress of grievances, or an assumption of all the powers of Government, legislative, executive and judicial, through out the whole Continent, very soon. Georgia is be stirring itself. I mean, the whole of it. The Parish of St. John's, which is one third of it, was with us before.

I am, &c.
