Yours of the 11th September last at Yeotaugh1 Springs came safe to hand. The account you gave concerning the engagement, was very acceptable and satisfactory to the inhabitants here but were sorry to hear of the unfortunate of our Officers, &c., which we quickly had an acc't of.
You mention Stores of several kinds are wanting in camp. Sometime past I think about the 14th of September, I sent five wagons, laden with stores, peculiarly for the use of your Brigade, Vizt:
The above I expect you'll receive ere this arrives. However I am desired by Col. Long to inform you, that Clothing shall be sent on as soon as a Quantity sufficient can be prepared, which will be accompanied with as many other necessaries, as possibly can be procured, agreeable to your request.
I have this day sent off four Waggons bearing stores of Rum, Sugar and Coffee for the use of the General Hospital in the Southern Department. I have wrote to Col. Armstrong, who is now at Tarborough, with upwards of 100 Men; to whom I made mention your not hearing from him, &c.
