[v. 3, No.
106.] Lieut. Col. Brown to Brig. Gen. Pickens
and L't. Col. Lee
In your summons of the 3d instant no particular
conditions were specified; I postponed the consideration of
it to this day.
From a desire to lessen the distresses of war to
individuals, I am included to propose to you my acceptance
of the enclosed terms, which being pretty similar to those
granted to the commanding officers of the American troops
and garrison in Charles Town, I imagine will be honourable
to both parties.
I have the honour to be, &c.
