Newbern 3d April 1771.

John Burgwin Esquire.

I am to desire the favor of you to give the Warrants on the Treasury to the Officers to whom they are directed vizt General Waddell Colonels Ashe Moore and Schaw also the several Commissions as addressed—You will take separate Receipts for the Warrants and transmit to me by the Bearer Captain Dawson together with the Papers I left with you of Mr Strudwick's.

I had a pleasant journey back to Newbern. The Expedition afforded me much satisfaction being highly pleased with the general spirit that I was witness to at Wilmington and the distinguished Civilities that were conferred on me by the Gentlemen then in Town.

Make my proper compliments to the General and the Gentlemen who are concerned in this Dispatch to whom I should have wrote should time have permitted. I send a Haversack as a Pattern for the several Detachments.
