Newbern 7th December 1770.

Colonel John Simpson,

I am much pleased with the active spirit you have shewn in calling your Regiment together on the alarm of the Regulators coming to Newbern as well as the alertness with which so large a Body of men then assembled on the short notice that was given them.

As the alarm seems to have passed over it will be sufficient to warn your men to be in readiness to turn out again if circumstances should require.
