"I SHALL SET OUT TOMORROW FOR THE SOUTHERN ARMY" (AMERICAN REVOLUTION.) MORRIS, LEWIS; JR. Autograph Letter Signed, to S. White, explaining that his obligations would likely prevent him from meeting a mutual friend or becoming a partner in a business venture, but inviting him to visit in Virginia. 2 pages, 4to, written on the recto and verso of a single sheet; short separations at folds with minor loss to text, faint scattered staining. (TFC) Philadelphia, 1 November 1780
"I . . . wish it was in my power to answer . . . more fully . . . but I shall set out tomorrow for the Southern Army, and have a thousand little things to command my attention before I go. . . . You have been informed of my attachment for our friend and may conceive how pleasing the subject was to me tho I am separated from her by a vast ocean and my profession precludes me from following her . . . . ". . . I wish to hear from you when you come to Virginia. Your letter will find me at the Head Quarters of the Southern Army. I shall write to our friend and as you will probably see her from what you hint, will entrust you with the letter. . . ." Lewis Morris, Jr. (1754-1824) served as aide-de-camp to General Sullivan in 1776 and, in 1779 until the end of the war, to General Greene; he was a son of the signer of the Declaration of Independence, Lewis Morris.
