CAPTAIN COSMO MEDICI TO COLONEL BLAND, AT PETERSBURG VIRGINIA.
[From Bland Papers, Vol. 1, page 97.]

July 18, 1778.

Sir:

I embrace this opportunity, by an officer on his way to the northward, to acknowledge the receipt of your letter. I shall pay all due attention to its contents, though I am much afraid the clothing for the men will not be got ready so soon as their saddles. However I shall take pains in order to forward them agreeable to your order. I shall be glad how soon, sir, you could furnish me with money as I have it in my power at this time to get both men and horses. I am, most respectfully, sir,

Your most obedient, humble servant, &c.,
COSMO MEDICI.
