|Edward Rutledge correspondence
|To the Associators of Pennsylvania Gentlemen, Congress have received intelligence that a fleet of the enemy, consisting of several hundred sail, were yesterday discovered near Sandy-Hook, steering to the southward. It is highly probable that their destination is for Delaware and the city of Philadelphia. ... General Washington, at the head of a considerable part of his army, is advancing southward; but, notwithstanding all the dispatch he can possible make, the enemy may arrive before him. ... Congress will do everything in their power to strengthen you. .
