In a similar vein is a letter from the governor of New Jersey.

Sir: Yours of August nineteenth, 1796, is duly rec'd, intimating your design of going to Europe, and that your friends, among whom you are but just in ranking me, have written letters. I have to regret that I cannot be of service to you, sir, for want of being known in Europe, but I add with pleasure whatever I can contribute, to assure all whom it may concern that whatever con- fidence they may repose in the integrity and honor of my friend and fellow-soldier, Captain Sedam, it can never, in my opinion, disappoint them. I am perfectly aware of the caution that be- comes me, as a private gentleman, and as the Governor of the State of New Jersey, but I do not hesitate to attest that from an intimate knowledge of you, in all the relations of a citizen, a soldier and a gentleman, and that from early life I have found you, and you have ever been considered as worthy of the confidenceand respect of all good men.

Accept, sir, my affectionate wishes for your success and safety, and rest assured that I take an interest in your happiness abroad, and your safe return. I am, sir, Your friend and very humble servant TRENTON, AUGUST 20, 1796. R. B. HOWELL.

Vol. 41, pg 39, Ohio History

Cornelius Sedam and His Friends in Washington's Time Howells adds the following postscript:

That there are in France very many official signatures, and by comparison you may identify this; for which you may apply to the offices where certificates of residents are lodged. In Hol-land I am unknown, and almost in England, but I wish, if any- thing should direct your route to Wales near an ancient castle called Caerfilly, I think in *Glenmoreganshire, you would inquire if any of my name live there. I know nor care but little about heraldry, but my great-grandfather's name was Howell Harry, my grandfather Reynold Howell, and my grandmother's Mary George. Mrs. Henfry, my friend's wife, with his family, lives at Workton, I think, fifteen or twenty miles from Sheffield, who would be happy to hear of his being in good health, and in good hopes of seeing her soon. Adieu! Her two sons live in Trenton under my care, and are both well. If, by accident, the within recommendations should fall into other hands than are intended, let it be remembered that Captain Sedam is five feet eleven inches high or thereabouts, broad and firmly made, fair-haired and of good complexion, erect in car- riage, and about thirty two or three years of age, to the best of my recollection. R. B. HOWELLS.
