1805. CORNWALLIS (Lord), Ravages of in Virginia.—[continued].

Lord Cornwallis encamped
ten days on an estate of mine at Elk

the farm with the produce of the former year
in them. He burned all the enclosures, and
wasted the fields in which the crop of that year

(it was in the month of June) was growing.
He killed or carried off living animal,
cutting the throats of those which were to
young for service. Of the slaves he carried
away thirty.—
To William Jones. Ford ed., iv, 354.
