PHILLIP VASS TO GENERAL SUMNER.

N. Carolina, Granville C'ty.
Harrisburg, 10th Aug., 1781.

Dear Sir:

You will receive per the wagon that comes with Lieut. Andrews' detachment one hundred and seventy eight & half pounds bacon, one box of soap containing sixty one pounds. I am afraid the bacon is not so good as I could wish for, owing to its being packed up in the night. You'll please give me written orders respecting not issuing of soap at this post; otherwise very little will fall to your share.

I am in haste, with due respect,
Your very Humble Servt.,
PHILLIP VASS,
Commiss.
