Sir:

The Continental Troops raised in the State of North Carolina are supposed to be on their March to Join the army in Jersey. In Conformity to the direction of a Resolve of Congress of yesterday's date (of which the enclosed is a Copy) you will with the greatest Expedition proceed towards that State, and hasten the Troops on their March from thence to the places at which they are directed to halt by said resolve, to be inoculated where you will direct such as have not had the Small Pox to remain for inoculation, the others to be expedited to the Army in Jersey.

I am Sir Your Very Humble Servant,
By order M. Genl. Schuyler,
HENRY B. LIVINGSTON.
To Colonel Ramsey.
