Description
Intelligence from Gen. Nelson shows that the enemy's fleet has stood out for the Capes; should they be going to reinforce the army in the south, together with the troops now embarking at New York, they will probably soon return to this state in greater force; South Carolina and Georgia weigh nothing in the American scale, and North Carolina is exhausted; the weight of opposition must rest on Virginia; men, clothing, arms, subsistence, transportation, and money must be provided; he has tried every measure to procure these, and has made some progress; lays before them papers from Gen. Green.
