GEN. JETHRO SUMNER TO GENERAL GATES.

Camp at Downing's, Sept. 10th, 1780.

Sir:

I have the honour to send you here inclosed a General Return of the troops fit for duty under my Command, & refer you to Generl. Caswell for a State of the Arms & further particularities. I will send you, Sir, fresh returns from Salisbury, where I expect to be by Wenesday, which will be more regularly than the Shortness of the time permitted me to get this done.

I am, Sir, with the highest esteem,
Yr. Most Obdt. Servt.
JETHRO SUMNER.
Maj. Genl. Gates.
