Captain Robert Howe,

By the first opportunity you will make me return of all the arms, accoutrements, Artillery and Stores in Fort Johnston agreable to the usual Forms, also a Return of the number of effective men and the number of men wanting to compleat the Establishment as voted by a Resolve of the last Session of Assembly. This last return of the strength of the Garrison and the number of men wanting to compleat the present Establishment you will make up the first of every month and transmit to me by the General Post, at the same time certifying all Contingencies and Extraordinaries that may occur in the month preceeding such return.
