I take this opportunity to acquaint you that Capt. Tarrant is the Commanding officer of the second North Carolina Battalion in this State, and have ordered him to make a return to your Excellency the 10th of every month, the success of the recruiting officers of the said Battalion.
I have ordered Capt. Benjamin Williams to the Northward with me, and shall set off in two days from this.
N. B. I have recruited since my last return 6 men.
