GEN. ALLEN JONES TO MAJOR GENL. GATES.

Camp at Wake Courthouse, October 9th, 1780.

Sir:

Your favour of the 5th I was yesterday honoured with, and shall alter my route accordingly; but as we have neither tents or cartridge boxes, I shall go by Hillsborough, where I hope to be supplied with those necessaries, and have wrote for that purpose to the board of war. I expect to leave this on Wednesday morning with about 500 men, and shall have the honour of seeing you on Friday. In the meantime I am,

With the greatest respect, Sir,
Yr. Mo. Ob. Sert.,
ALLEN JONES, ESQ.
Hon. Gen. Gates.
