After my compliments to you I will just inform you that our election is over, but I have not heard who was elected.
Fanning is still about. Last week a woman was murdered by him or some of his party.
I have heard nothing from the Southward of late, only a flying report of a cessation of Arms for six months.
I am at this time necessitated to send to you for about twenty-five blank Commissions, for the present officers are without them and do not care to act without them.
For instance, in the last Draft a certain Captain was drafted anp he refused to serve without he had a Commission, for he knew at the time that there could be none got.
If you will send them up as soon as possible you will much oblige
