Volume 08, Page 694

Wrote to Colonel Hinton and to Colonel Bryan each as follows:

Newbern 27th Febry 1771.

I am to require you to make me a Return forthwith of the whole Expence of assembling your Regiment to prevent the Regulators marching to Newbern.

I much wish that you may be punctual and exact in this Return as any Charges omitted might perhaps be found difficult to get allowed afterwards by the Legislature especially as I purpose soon to return to England.
