LT. COL. VAUGHAN TO MAJ. GENL. GATES.

Camden, August 17th, 1780.

Sir:

The situation of our wounded officers and Soldiers makes it necessary that Surgeons should be sent in to take care of them; and if the Medicine Chests should not be all taken, some medicine should be sent also. Not less than two surgeons will be sufficient to give the necessary attendance, and I intreat you to send them as soon as possible. Genl. Cornwallis has promised me to address you on this head, and they will be received by the flag which carries this.

I am your Obedt. Servt.,
JO. VAUGHAN,
Leut. Colo. Delr. Regt.
