Newbern 18th April 1771.

Colonel Edward Buncombe,

Mr Campbell has I don't doubt before this delivered you my letter of the 12th April with a Warrant for £150 proc: inclosed; I have therefore only to observe here that I entirely approve of your drafting whatever number of men may be wanting to complete the Company ordered from your Regiment in case there is a deficiency of Volunteers.
