Letter, 28 June 1800, of W[illiam] W[ard] Burrows, writing from Phil[adelphi]a, [Pennsylvania], to Jacob Read, in New Port, Rhode Island.

Burrows reports, "John Thomas is apprehended, I had him before Mr. Jennings, but he denied any knowledge of y[ou]r Servants: he prevaricated very much, and Mr. Jennings has committed him to Jail ‘till he can hear from you. It is believed y[ou]r Negroes are gone to Baltimore."

W.W. Burrows was the first commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps.
