Author: Powell, Leven, 1737-1810
Abstract: Describes arrivals of battalions, half to Hampton, and half to guard Williamsburg, though he feels there is "hardly anything worth our notice" in protecting Williamsburg; mention of Gov. Dunmore's troops and of talk of his being drunk and "mad" since his defeat at Great Bridge; discussion of his appointment to the Convention being doubtful; describes the firing of "cannons about Norfolk."
