Sir:—

Yours of the 15th inst came to hand yesterday, I immediately issued orders for the General Muster of the Pitt Militia to be at Martinsburg on Wednesday next. I observe your Excellency directs the drafting the men agreeable to the late Law, which Law is not come to hand, and unless your Excellency can furnish me with an abstract of it, I shall be entirely at a loss. The bearer returns this way, which will be good opportunity.

I am with due respect,
Your Excellency's most obed. Serv't.,
