Description
Mr. Treutle [John Adam Treutlen], late Governor of Georgia, has been brought in a prisoner; this is one of many marks of the people's desire to submit; Lord Cornwallis paroled this gentleman, not knowing the capacity in which the latter had acted; Balfour now sends him to headquarters, having learned that he acted a violent part and influenced the Dutch inhabitants against Great Britain; it would be bad policy not to discriminate against those who have been conspicuous among the rebels; he is carrying out Paterson's instructions, in encouraging those that are friendly; he tries to check the people's desire to resent private injuries; will march the next day to McCord's ferry.
