Thomas Hart Esquire.

As it is the Intention of Government to raise a Body of Men to suppress the Insurrections in the Western Counties I am to desire to know whether it will be agreeable to you to furnish for one month from the 20th of April next Five hundred Men with Provisions on the same Terms you supplied the Troops assembled at Hillsborough in 1768. If you incline to accept this offer you will send me your Bond properly executed for that purpose.
