COLO. P. MALLETT TO GOV. ABNER NASH.

Thursday Morning, 26th Aug., 1780.

Sir:

The hurry of business may have taken up your Excellency's attention towards the supplies necessary for the troops here, and for the very inconsiderable number that will be in this night. The feeling I have for those in distress induced me to remind you that there is not one day's rations. Mr. Henderson, of Granville, offers 50 Cattle for money; they can be here in 4 or 5 days.

I am, your Excellency's most obedient Servt.,
P. MALLETT.
