<br /> Lee Letter: n649

Washington and Lee University

Sender: Daniel Carroll
Recipient: Thomas Sim Lee

Dear Sir,

I have only a moment to forward the enclosd by the Bearer. A flag is just
arrivd from Charles Town, among the passengers Genl. Moultrie who says
that the Troops under Lord Rawdan after throwing in a reinforcement to
the Garrison at 96 had retreated to Orangeburgh, & were much harasd
on their retreat by the Horse under Lee & Sumpter. Genl. Green had
been reinforced & again Laid seige to 96, which Genl. Moultrie
thinks must Fall.

You will see in the paper some of the intercepted Letters. The most
important are yet to be publish’d. Present me to Mrs. Lee.

I am Dr Sr., Most Affectionately Yrs,

Danl. Carroll
