As I am a Man who makes it my daily Study to serve my Country in the Military way, I therefore would wish for a little information from your Excellency Respecting a certain Col. Andrews, a Tory Col., who commands a party of Torys on Drowning Creek, and I believe is now in arms against this State. The sd. Andrews has a Major whose name is Gainey. Those fellows does not know me. I therefore have an inclination to take the Advantage of their ignorance, and that immediately, and I would wish to know from your Excellency whether there is any reward for those fellows, and what the reward is.
P. S.—If your Excellency sees cause to send any answer please to deliver it to James Mebane.
