R. BIGNALL TO GENERAL SUMNER.

Tarborough, June 5th, 1781.

Dear Sir:

I have just received a letter from Mr. Joshua Potts, for a waggon load of salt for the use of the troops under your command. I now send sixteen bushels, which I am under the necessity of borrowing, as we have no public salt on hand, very large quantities of salt was sent up the Country last winter to the Commissioners for Public use. What became of it I can't tell, but am in hopes some inquiry will be made about it.

I am Dear General,
Your Most Obedient Servant,
R. BIGNALL.
