Edward L. Green Sec. to G.G. Agent.

Sir,

I have the honour to enclose you a letter of Mr. Skipwith's, giving information relative to the action of the enemy with their prisoners. There is too much reason to believe these fanatics have carried out their design, and put to death the whole of the number mentioned in the enclosed letter.


I have the honour to be, Sir, Your most obedient servant (Signed)
Charles Westrup, Capt. Co. J.
To:- His Honour Donald McLean Napier.
