GEN. JETHRO SUMNER TO MAJ. WALLACE, A. D. Q. M.

Camp Charlotte, July 25th, 1781.

Dear Sir:

By Express just arrived from General Greene I am commanded to instruct and order you to hold yourself in readiness with all the public stores under your care to move in an hour's notice up to the mountains upon the first certain intelligence you have of the Enemy's rout towards Salisbury southward, from Virginia.

A small guard you are to apply for from Col. Locke, or to Major Blount to escort your stores.

I am Sir, your servt.,
JETHRO SUMNER.
