I am Just now arrived at this place. The troops are much Fatigued, and are droping sick in great numbers every day. I left the 200, as you directed, at Masque's Ferry on peadee with all the Sick I then had. This, with great desertions, &c., has reduced my numbers very low.
I am now without provisions, and all my horses nearly given out; shall wait here till 4 O'clock this evening, by wch time expect I shall hear from you.
