Personal Author: Brodhead, Daniel.
Date: 1782 April 30.
Extent: [1] leaf.
Abstract: Brodhead declares that though he has nothing of importance to communicate, he could not resist dropping Stone a line as a bearer is bound for Philadelphia and will stop by their office. He mentions Mrs. Read who "gave me a Roasting" for having no news to tell her of Philadelphia; Miss Grace Riche, "a lovely girl," has "made conquests here" and remembered Brodhead. He reviews the other "fine girls" he has met or had tea with. In company with Colonel North and Captain White he journeys to "York-Town," mentioning the stream that runs through Little York which "has been often sung by youthful loving Bards." After riding 53 miles today, Brodhead states that he is fatigued, but will be with Stone soon, and sends his greetings to the office.
