Dear Sir:

One hundred & Ninety Camp Kettles have arrived here, which I have directed the Quarter Master to forward to Hilsborough immediately. The Waggon Master, Robt. Nelson, has Orders to deliver them to Colo. Homer, who I am told is Quarter Master, at Hilsborough, for the use of the Army under your Command.

I have the Honor to be, with respect,
Yr. Mo. Ob.
