By Gen. John Ashe I have received your appointment as Commissioner: which I am much obliged to you for. Mr. Ashe told me he had no orders to supply any money, and the men is complaining much for the want of their pay. If any bond is required, one will be given to Gen. Ashe.

Sir, I am your very humle Ser't.,
