With this you will receive a general return of the Regiments of Militia for the District of Hillsborough. I am sorry to say that it is not as perfect as I could wish as I have not yet received any return from Granville County, though I sent express, for that purpose agreeably to your orders of the 15th July last. You will observe some other imperfections in the return, owing no doubt to the officers not having the Militia Law before them. The next return I have the honor to make you, I hope will be better finished. I am your most obedient servant.
