[From Executive Letter Book.]

Campbleton, 6th Feby., 1780.


I did myself the honor some time ago to inform your Excellency that I had settled my Forage account with Mr. Mallett; at the same time desired to know if such a settlement was satisfactory to your Excellency, or what other method I might take that would be more so; but as I have not been so happy to receive an answer from you, take the liberty once more to trouble you on the same head, and should be glad to know if you have any further occasion for my service in that way, or any other you might think me useful in; shall always receive your commands with cheerfulness. The Third Regiment of light Dragoons, commanded by Lieut. Col. Washington, left this for Charleston yesterday morning. We have a report prevailing here that a Fleet has been seen off the state of Georgia. If any provision should be wanting this way, I beg leave to acquaint you that I have put up a small quantity of about 60 or 70 barrels of Beef & Pork for the House of Mallett, Emmett and Mallett, which we would gladly dispose of to the public, at the market price.

I am, with due respect, Sir,
Your Excelly's ob. Serv't.,
