Congratulating him "upon the new and glorious face of our affairs. There has been no point of time since the unfortunate and inglorious 29 December which I have felt the pains of confinement more heavily than the present. It is truly disagreeable to be in my present situation, wh[en] the liberty & Independence of my Country are about to be restored by the exertions of my friends. To be with them, and participate the danger and the glory of so great an asperation would be my happiness;" thanking him for his "attention and anxiety for my welfare after the loss of Savannah;" saying he wrote to him several times "but directing my letters to you as Governor of the State of Georgia, I believe they were detained - I did not give it up; and I had a small addition to my bounty."
