Having the opportunity, by Genl. Rutherford, I enclose you return of the Brigade, which I hope will arrive safe to hand. The men generally are healthy, but very much in want of necessary clothing, which we hope, if consistent, may be sent them, and some orders respecting recruiting. I wrote you by Sanders, the Express, on this matter, but receiving no answer (doubtless a miscarriage) I now mention it again.
Genl. Rutherford we refer you to for the news and situation of the Troops on this side of the River.
