LT. COL. CARRINGTON TO MAJ. GENL. GATES.

Taylor's Ferry, Sept. 26, 1780.

Dr. Sir:

Your letter by Mr. Bell I was this moment Honored with. There is not a Single Axe in Store here. I have Wrote by Mr. Bell, to Richmond, to have some forwarded immediately. Some were making when I left that place, & I hope we shall not be disappointed. The Waggons from Hilsborough have just arrived. Five of them we can load here, & they shall be dispatched immediately. The Balance, as Mr. Lamb has a quantity of provisions which he has not been able to get on for want of Waggons, I shall send there to be loaded.

I have the Honor to be,
With much respect, Yr. Mo Obt.
ED. CARRINGTON,
Lt. Col. Art.
