|Thomas Gage to John Bradstreet about delivering sheep
|25 December 1768
|Gage, Thomas (ca. 1719-1787)
|Written by Major General Gage to Lieutenant Colonel Bradstreet. Forgot to mention in his first letter that the mayor desired "the Smith's sheep" be delivered up to him. Says he thought it was mentioned to Bradstreet before, but that he could have possibly forgot. Written as the British military was occupying Boston and in the process of quartering troops in Boston.
