COL. PORTERFIELD TO MAJ. GENL. GATES.

15th August, 1780.

Sir:

I have not more than eighty of the militia now with me, & I expect some of them will desert this day. I met five on their way as I came down. I wish more officers and men could be sent from the Virginians.

I will fully inform you of the Road, &c., in the evening.

I have the Honor to be,
Your servt.,
C. PORTERFIELD.
Maj. Genl. Gates.
