COL. ABM. BUFORD TO MAJ. GENL. GATES.

Camp, November ye 1st, 1780.

Sir:

The company of eight Months' men that are taken (By Genl. Stevens) from my Corps leaves me but three companies. I have reserv'd their arms, & propose to put them into the hands of as many of the Augusta men. I understand that there are spare arms at Guilford Courthouse. If so, & I can have an order for them, I think It will be advisable to take all the Eighteen Months' men on with me. I shall be glad of your orders respecting the Matter. Also your order for the arms at Guilford Corthouse.

I am, with respect,
Your Very Hble. Servt.,
ABM. BUFORD, Colo.
Genl. Gates.
