Letter to Capt George Webb dated May 15, 1781 from Lafayette from The State of Vermont. Found in family papers by his daughter Ruth Webb Goulding.

"My dear sir---- Your successful scarmish has afforded me the greatest pleasure and I request you will receive yourself and present your company my best thanks on the occassion. Major Jicks is requested to exert himself in finding out the position, size and number of long boat Helen--lie either at City Point or in the Appamattox river. The taking of these boats is a more desirous object and would produce good effects of a very extensive nature. But I cannot give orders as the capture depends
upon the uncertain situation of local circumstances. Should you think it advisable to undertake, precautions must be taken to have your reteat secured at all events. In case the entrprise is not executed tonight, I wish you will return with your company in the cool of the evening, and if you have any object in view you will repair here tomorrow with the boats. With the most sincere esteem, your, Lafayette

His father was John Webb who was lost at sea shortly after birth of his youngest son: John Webb
