Dear General.

I well know your attachment to men of worth, and I am sure it will not be esteemed the less because it comes recommended by me. I therefore, with pleasure introduce to your acquaintance and civilities the Bearer Mr. Demmere a Gentleman of Georgia, who comes to the Army with a strong desire of becoming a part of it. Bregadier Gen. Howe of Carolina recommends this gentleman to me as a person of great spirit and zeal in the American cause, and one whose activity and influence has served it much. Your pamphlets are ready and I will contrive them by the first safe conveyance. I am, with great regard, dear Sir

your most affectionate and obedient.
Richard Henry Lee
