LT. COL. JAMES THACKSTON TO GEN. JETHRO SUMNER.

November 16th, 1780.

“After you left this place a few days on your way home from the army, I had concluded to go out, and if a command offered that I could accept with propriety, to take it untill the Assembly sat at Halifax. Gen. Gates is certainly superseded. Gen. Greene and the Baron Steuben are on their way to the Southern army.”
