GEN. WM. DAVIDSON TO GENL. SUMNER.

Graham's, Octr. 2d, 1780.

Sir:

I can hear nothing further of the party that was said to be advancing. Dickinson, who captured the prisoners, must have been their object, as they appeared at that place. The account of Ferguson being at Burke Court-house is false. Ferguson is gone, God knows where, & Cleveland occupies the ground at the Courthouse, & I am informed by people from his camp intends to proceed to Ninety-Six. I shall move to Phyfer's when I have three hundred men, & 200 are with me.

I am, &c., &c.,
WM. DAVIDSON.
Honble. Brigr. Genl. Sumner.
