COL. ED. CARRINGTON TO GENERAL SUMNER. (DIRECTED TO SALISBURY.)

July 23rd, 1781, Camp.

Dear Sir:

Gen. Greene informs me Sir, that he wrote you to keep a lookout and direct the removal of such stores as may be in your quarter, when the movements of the enemy shall render it necessary. I do myself the honor to inform you that Maj. James Wallace, A. D. Q. M. at Oliphant's Mill, Mr. Wm Alexander, ditto at Charlotte and Capt. Gamble at Salisbury are charged with the public stores. I have directed them to be in readiness and to take their order from you with respect to the removal.

I have the honor to be
Yr. M. Obt.
Servant,
ED. CARRINGTON,
D. Q. M. G'l.
