. The enclosed clipping from the London Gazette
of 9 Oct. has not been found. The Gazette
account of the Battle of Camden (see James Lovell's letter of 7 Sept
, and note 2
, above) was reprinted in the other London newspapers on the 10th. The report was
contained in Cornwallis' letter to Lord George Germain, dated 21 Aug., at Camden.
The sentiments expressed by Digges were very similar to those in the commentary appearing
in the London Evening Post
of 7–10 October.
