New York. Novemr. 4th. 1765.

Sir

As I am going with Dispatches to England
relative to these distractive times; and as my
Life and Dispatches are in danger of being taken
by the Mobb in Sloops or otherways; I shall esteem
it as a particular favour to take me and my
Dispatches under your protection, by putting me
on board A Ship bound for England at the Hook;
which favour will greatly oblige
Sir
your Most Obedient Humble
Servant Thomas James.
