I had your favor of the 15th handed me yesterday, and am very glad you have undertaken to furnish Provisions to the Troops. Mr. Thomas Blount, assistant paymaster to the Troops, went some time past to Salisbury with a large sum of money to pay off the Troops, and to furnish the Commissaries with such sums as might be necessary. You will therefore be pleased to apply to Genl. Rutherford who will order the paymaster to advance to you such sums as you may have an immediate occasion for. I am Sir, your most obedt. Servt.
