MAJOR HENRY DIXON TO GENERAL SUMNER.

Hillsborough, 28th April, 1781.

Dear General,

I wrote you yesterday of my intent to return to Caswell, but I shall first go to General Butler's Camp and expect to be here on Tuesday and Wednesday next as I return, Shall use my utmost endeavour to get everything in order for the reception of the Troops by the time they will rendezvous at this place. Should Gen. Butler not alter the place of the district rendezvous which I think will not be until about the 20th of next month, should you have any particular orders for me should be glad to receive them here next Wednesday.

Am Dear Sir with every esteem and respect your most obedient humble servant,
HENRY DIXON, Major.
