<br /> Lee Letter: n655

Sender: Daniel Carroll
Recipient: Thomas Sim Lee

Dear Sir,

I have just returnd from the Country & write this in Congress by
Express, & therefore cannot answer a Letter of yours which the
Major writes me is on his table at home. I suppose the Marquis has
informd you that the Enemy have returnd & disembarqu’d in York
River.

A Letter from Genl. Green of the 17th Ulto. from the Hights of Santee gives
us an acct. of his Movements since the raising of the seige of 96. The
particulars will be given you by to morrows post. I shall therefore
only say that 96 is evacuated. The Enemy were at Orangeburgh – on their
retreat to that place, Capt. Eccleston with a part of Col. Lees Legion
had taken 3 Officers & 45 privates of the Enemies calvalry with the
horses &c.

A Vessel is just arrivd from Cadiz which she left, I believe about the last
of June. I have not heard fully the intelligence. To morrows post will
probably give me an opportunity of saying something to you. The express
waits.

Yrs Dr Sr.

Danl Carroll
