In a letter dated Sept. 23 from New York is: "...Yesterday we hanged an officer of the Provincials who came as a spy...". Noting that this letter is dated "From New York Island, Sept. 23", and with the records verifying that Nathan Hale was hanged on Sept. 22 in New York, it is very obvious that this "officer of the Provincials" was Nathan ...
