Letter from Stephen Moore and John Barnwell to General N. Greene

From North Carolina State Records


PRISON SHIP FORBAY, CHARLES TOWN HARBOUR,
18th May, 1781

We have the honor of inclosing (sic) you a copy of a letter from Colonel balfour commandant of Charlestown, which was handed us immediately on our being put on board this ship. The letter speaking for itself needs no comment; your wisdom will best dictate the notice it merits. We just beg leave to observe that should it fall to the lot of all, or any of us, to be made victims, agreeable to the menaces therein contained, we have only to regret that our blood cannot be disposed of more to the advancement of the glorious cause to which we have adhered. A separate Roll of our names attends this letter.

With the greatest respect, we are, Sir,
Your most obedient and most Híble Servants,
STEPHEN MOORE,
Lieut. Colo. No. Carolina Militia
JOHN BARNWELL,
Major So. Carolina Militia
For ourselves and one hundred and thirty other Prisoners.

To Major Geníl N. Greene
