The Pitt Volunteers, under the Command of Col. John Salter & Major James Gorham, Intend to be at Kingston on the 18th Inst., on their way to join Genl. Caswell. They will want guns and potts.

I have sent inclosed my Bond for £1,000 for paying bounty to such as may want, forage for the horses, provisions, &c. Should be glad you'd send the money by Mr. Lockey.

I am, your Exce. most obed. Servt.,
JOHN SIMPSON,
