COL. ALEX. MARTIN TO COLONELS SUMNER & POLK OF THE NORTH CAROLINA TROOPS.

Petersburg, April 28th, 1777.

Gentlemen:

If you should want Provisions or Money Mr. Call, in Behalf of the Continental paymaster & Commissary General, will furnish you with either, you drawing Bills, for that purpose. I knew not what Sums you should think necessary otherwise I would have drawn for you; but not more than one Month's pay for your Men I recommend to you to draw. Please to hurry after me with all Expedition. I shall wait for you at Fredericksburg or Dumfries.

I am Gentlemen,
Your most humble Servant.
ALEX. MARTIN.
Cols. Sumner & Polk, Petersburg.
