According to promise, I am to inform your Excellency that I am to go with the Militia to So. Carolina. I did not attend the draft at Wilmington for the Major, nor have I yet heard who was drafted from this district. I shall be much obliged to you to inform me who is Lieut. Col., and when you think the Militia from New Bern District will march; my men from this County will march with them to Cross Creek. If you have any new orders for me, you'l please to send them by the bearer hereof.
P. S. Please to let me know what General goes.
