[AMERICAN REVOLUTION]. HOWE, Robert. North Carolina Revolutionary War Continental Major General. Autograph letter signed, to Henry Laurens, April 26, 1778.

4to, Autograph Letter Signed, Savannah (Georgia), April 26, 1778. To Henry Laurens, then President of the Continental Congress.

“I take the Liberty to Enclose you, a few Strictures on the Reports of the Committee, of the assembly of this State, which in Case you should find it necessary either to my Defence or my Reputation you will Please to lay before Congress. I Presume to Trouble you…in Confidence of the Friendship which you have given me so many Instances of…”

“I hope however that you may have no Occasion to lay these Papers before Congress as I flatter myself that from the very face of the Proceedings between the assembly & me I shall appear unculpable…”

Howe at this time was still the Continental Commanding Officer in the Southern Department. The dispute evident here with Georgia authorities in which both side appealed to Congress evolved from disagreement over plans to attack St. Augustine, and the expedition later failed. Although a North Carolinian and early patriot, Howe was unpopular in Georgia and Southern Carolina. He was replaced by Benjamin Lincoln later in 1778.
