Sir:

Procure and send me as soon as possible an account of all the Deliveries in your Department for the Continental service since last October in order to enable me to obtain credit for the State on this year’s Quota.

Let me have a general return of the state of your Department, with the persons who have been employed therein, and in what service since the last Assembly. Be pleased also to recover for me the Bay horses purchased from Mr. Hunt for which I gave receipts.

I am Sir,
Yr. H’ble Serv’t,
THOS. BURKE.
