Description
Acknowledges letter of the 20th enclosing a copy of one from Maj. Doyle to Gen. Marion; the prisoners mentioned had already arrived at the High Hills of Santee, and he has given orders for the reception in hospital of such as need it; if Col. Maham was guilty of any inhumanity in the manner of making prisoners of those in the British hospital, he is sorry, but will not condemn that officer unheard; he denies the impropriety of making prisoners of men in hospitals; the hospitals of invaders have always been considered a proper military object; he does condemn the burning of hospitals, or of any other building, except when necessary to destroy public stores; the British commissary of prisoners refuses to send out the balance of prisoners due, though he has them at hand on prison-ships.
