I received your instructions dated at Coxes, July 20th, by Genl. Harrington, and have purchased about 400 Bushels of Wheat and 25 Steers. The wheat I shall have manufactured as soon as posable; and wate your Orders what to do with the beef. I have credit with a Gentleman who lives in Virginia for 130 Bushels of Salt, 65 of which is ready to be delivered at this Magazine on the payment of the Continental Money, and the remainder by the last of this month. I could Purchas much larger quantities of Provision if I could have money to pay the people immediately, for they depend on their Crops to purches salt and other nesserys for their family's. I shall remain in this place and Purches what I can on Credit until I receive further orders.
