King's American Regiment
Fanning to his Father

Setauket 31st Jan. 1777

My Dear Father,

I am accidently called down upon His Majesty’s Service as low as this Place, and am obliged to return back immediately, but cannot forego the Pleasure of writing You these few lines, & sending them by an Express hired for that Purpose, just inform You that I am very well and should have waited on You the last Time I was as low as the River Head, but was obliged to hurry on with the greatest Expedition to attend a muster which was had here the next day.

I shall be down again in ten or twenty days, or thereabouts, when I intend to come and see you and stay a day or two or more, and in the mean Time am with my tenderest Love to all my Relations, & best wishes for your Health & Happiness,

My Dear Father
Your most dutiful
and affectionate Son

Capt. James FANNING
