Major Ganey to Gen. Marion
August 25, 1781.

Sir:

Agreeably to your letter, I grant the truce to continue for twelve months betwixt us with this restriction. The property taken by the British themselves and confiscated about the country, I cannot engage to restore, for that is out of my power to do, but the articles I mean to observe with diligence. I hope you honor will be so kind as to send me an answer when you receive this, which answer I hope to receive by the 8th of September ensuing, as I hope we do not mean to take advantage of each other, and your compliance will very much oblige.

Your humble servant,

MICAJAH GANEY, Major Militia
