SIR,

I beg leave to congratulate your Excellency upon your being appointed General of the Armies of the United Colonies, which hath given sincere pleasure to every friend of America, and will, I hope, prove glorious to yourself, and be attended with essential advantages to your country.*

The General Assembly of this Colony have the deepest sense of the necessity of a strict union, and the most vigorous efforts, of the Colonies to preserve them from unlimited servitude; and their utmost exertions in the common cause may be depended upon.

I also assure your Excellency, that I shall give you every possible assistance in my power; and that I am with very great regard, Sir, your Excellency’s

Most obedient humble servant,

NICHOLAS COOKE.
