LT. COL. JOHN ARMSTRONG TO BRIG. GENERAL SUMNER.

High Hills Santee, November 15th, 1782.

Dear General:

A few days ago wrote to you inclosed with the Monthly and weekly returns of the Brigaid by Captain Doherty, and since I have nothing more particular. We are under marching orders and by preparation it is plain to me, General Greene will attack them again. Inclosed I have sent you a Roster of the officers’ commissions about as nigh as could be collected. The officers in General desire to be remembered to you.

I am in heast
Your most obedient
Humble servant,
JNO. ARMSTRONG.
