Abstract:
The enclosure gives the news of the disastrous defeat at Camden. La Luzerne comments that this defeat opens all of the Carolinas to British invasion, which he predicts will soon come. He also speaks of purchases of horses being made near Lancaster, Pa., and of the expected arrival of dispatches from France on the Alliance, which had just arrived at Boston.
