The Papers of General Nathanael Greene


To Jonathan Clarke, Jr.

Sir

I have your favor of the 6th by Mr Walter. This is the first time I have had the pleasure to hear from you since your captivity; and am sorry that it is not in my power to comply immediately with your wishes without injuring the claims of others as well as the public interest. The moment these difficulties can be removed I shall be happy in an opportunity to oblige you. I am sir

Your Most Obedient humble Sert

N Greene
