The men who are to march from Halifax will soon be ready, but I know not what we shall do for a person to victual them, unless Mr. Amis undertakes it. There is no other person who is able at so short a warning to supply them, as he had some public provision by him. If he undertakes it, he will want a considerable sum of money. I daily expect an express to your Excellency to countermand the march of these troops, which I most heartily wish, as the expedition is attended with an amazing expense and will certainly be of no advantage. Virginia was required to send one thousand men, but the Assembly is so well assured that it is to no purpose that they have refused to send a man.
There is nothing new here worth relating.
