HEN PERRY TO WORTHINGTON

To Honorable Thomas Worthington.
No doubt before this time you have had the official account of the battle between Govr. Harrison, and the Shawanoe Prophet; which has created a great deale of Alarm on the western frontiers; and it is reported that a number of boats bound for Orleans, have been taken on the Ohio & Mississippi but truth of it I cannot vouch for; It is to be hoped that Congress will take a firm stand against the British and all others Powers, [illeg.] so Insult us as grossly as I think the Brittish do us)
It appears from circumstances that in all probibly the army will be augmented at the present session of Congress If it should be the Case - and - if consistent with your goodness - I would be glad to have an appointment in the army if their be a Probility of any thing to be done Doctor Campbell & Mr. Morrow I have No doubt but would render me any assistance in their Power &c &c &c

I am Sir with due respect & consideration your friend & Obedient Humble Servant &c
In some of your lesure hours be so good as to give the News, and your progress in business &c
