MAJ. THOS. EATON TO GOV. ABNER NASH.

Halifax, June 8th, 1780.

To his Excellency Abner Nash, Esqr., Newbern.

Dear Sir:

I received your favour by Capt. Bradly last evening, and shall do all in my power to forward the aid required. I've inclosed a Bond for fifty thousand pounds, which you will be kind enough to send on by the bearer (Mr. Bandal). A report prevails here of Colo. Beauford's being totally Defeated on his retreat from Camden to Charlot. I am doubtful it is too true. I could wish to hear from some hand what provissions are laid in for the Militia, and at what places it may be drewn.

I remain, Yr. Excellcy's Obedt. Servt.,
THOS. EATON.
