Kinston, 4th Sept., 1787.


I wrote you some weeks past requesting you to march immediately on to Cumberland without having regard to the Cutting the Road on your way as the assistance of the Troops was very much wanting there; I also requested you to make me a Return as speedily as possible of your strength and Equipments, & as I have not been favored with a return and have since received pressing requests from the Officers Commanding at Cumberland to forward the troops, I again repeat my former orders that you proceed without delay to Cumberland and attend the orders of Colo. Bledsoe and Robertson, & as it is absolutely necessary that I should be furnished with your return I beg you will not delay sending the same in as soon as you possibly can.

Your most obedt. Servant,
