By Captain Williams I beg leave to acquaint you that my Perplexity in Endeavouring to get the Soldiers ready, & their cloathing has almost tired out my patience; being on any duty, let it be ever so troublesome, does not by any means effect me, but I fear you will think any long delay, may be owing to neglect of duty, which would make me very unhappy; I have not got in the tenth part of the Cloathing, but am resolved to march to-morrow morning at all events, if it is possible to get meal ground, which is now difficult for want of water, but the day following I hope to have no obstacle. Capt. Williams can inform you of the difficulties we laboured under here, which I partly communicated to you by Col. Kenan as he went to the Assembly.

I am Sr. Yr. Hum. Sert.,
