I am most grateful for your remembrance, & the useful present  have made me.  I trust a kind Providence will grant to a nations prayers the success you so ardently desire, & soon restore to us the blessings of peace.  Evidences of its favor are constantly occurring.  Genl Hoke on yesterday stormed & carried the enemy's works at Plymouth N.
