COL. JAMES ARMSTRONG TO GOVERNOR BURKE.

Martinborough, Sept 21st, 1781.

Sir:

Your letter of the 31st of Augt. I received on Sunday last and the orders therein contained have paid the greatest attention to, which I got completed last evening. After this I am in hopes Your Excellency will have no Objection to my Marching what Men I have to Halifax where they may be Arm'd and equipt, as its out of my Power to do it here. I shall set out for Tarborough tomorrow, to collect what few Men may be had in that Quarter & from thence proceed to Halifax.

I am Your, Sir Your Excellency's Most Obedt. Hble. Servt.,
JAMES ARMSTRONG.
His Excellency Govr. Burke.
