GEN. EDWARD STEVENS TO MAJOR GENERAL GATES.

Hillsborough, November 24th, 1780.

Dear General:

Just as the Express was setting out the Waggon Master that was with the Waggons, comeing from Newburn, came in. He informs me the Waggons are about three miles from this.

The Troops has marched, tho' I will endeavour that the Stores shall over take them to Night or Tomorrow, as they shall not stop in this place.

With much respect,
I am, Dear General,
Your very hum. Servt.,
EDWARD STEVENS.
