Sender: Daniel Carroll
Recipient: Thomas Sim Lee

Dear Sir,

The president has just receivd a Letter with information that a
considerable Body of troops are on Board at New York, likewise Genl.
Clintons baggage. They had been on board some days, & it is
conjecturd by the writer of the Letter that they waited for a
reinforcement from Europe. He adds that about 40 Vessels under the
Convoy of a 50 Gun Ship & two frigates arrivd at Sandy Hook last
Saturday. We have good reason to believe these Vessels saild from
Charles Town with abt 160 Troops belonging to the Regts at New
York.1

I have not time to add more than that I am Dear Sr, Yours

Danl Carroll
