By the bearer Sergt. Newby I have sent you 20 Boxes of Cartridges & a box of Butter & a Waggon & team. I have not another Waggon at this post at present. I have two more on their way from Hillsborough. I have a quantity of powder, lead and Rum & think it necessary to keep a guard & Do, with my artificers. Pray let me know by the first opportunity how I shall get a proper guard for this Magazine.
