CAPT ROBERT FENNER 2nd REGT. TO RRIG. GENL. SUMNER.

Guilford Court House, May 21st, 1782.

Sir:

Agreeable to your orders I have examined into the State of the Arms at this place. I find there are about seven or eight hundred gun barrels, very few locks, bayonets or ramrods & not one whole stock.

Since our march from Hillsborough we have had four desertions, three of which carried their arms with them. I send you a return of their names inclosed.

I am, Sir,
With due respect,
Yours, &c.,
ROBERT FENNER.
