The Papers of General Nathanael Greene


From Colonel Otho H. Williams

Dr General

I congratulate you on the success of the Legion against the Garrison at Geo: Town.
I think it probable, from the Tenor of Coll Lees letter, that the Cavalry had no opportunity of using their Swords.
If I am to form a Detachmt to Coonerate with the Legion in the enterprise against the British Troops at Willmington, Major Ridley will expect the Command being the next Senior Major for Duty.
I cannot think it practicable for the Troops from Virginia to act in concert with those from Chas Town unless they come the same way.
This Moment you[r] dispatches to Genl Huger arrived, every thing shall be attended to.I am Dr Genl with great Esteem

Yr. mo: Obedt Hble Serv.

O H Williams
