The alarming circumstances of Georgia and of this State require that a number of Troops should be marched hither, with the utmost expedition. As confidential persons, well acquainted with these circumstances, may make a more effectual representation, and give more satisfactory acct. of them, on a personal interview, than can be done by Letter, I have requested Nicholas Eveleigh and Daniel Huger, Esqrs., Gentlemen of rank and respectable character, to wait on you and the Governor of Virginia for this purpose, and to solicit speedy and sufficient aid. I doubt not that you will give full credit to what those Gent. (whom I beg leave to recommend to your particular notice) relate and due attention to their application and I flatter myself that it will be as successful as I wish it, being persuaded that our Brethren of North Carolina will, upon this occasion, discover the same zeal which they have always manifested, when necessary, in support of the great & general cause in which we are engaged.
P. S. If these Gentlemen sho'd have occasion for any Money in No. Carolina, you will be pleased to supply them, on the Credit of this State, & it shall be repaid, in any manner you please.
