COL. ED. CARRINGTON TO COL. LONG.

Camp High Hills of Santee, July 15th, 1781.

Sir:

Our Draught Horses are failing us fast, from excessive service. I wish for a supply from you of two hundred at least. You will be good enough to take measures for having them provided, either by purchases of your own, or thro' the executive of your State. You will urge the application by every means in your power, and afford us relief as soon as possible.

I beg you will be careful that none be got, but such as are strong, & perfectly fit for service.

I am &c.
ED. CARRINGTON.D.
Q. M. G., S. C.
Col. Long.
