Newbern 18th April 1771.

Colonel Edward Vail,

In my answer to your letter of the 8th instant I inclosed a Warrant of £200 and sent it by Mr Campbell before I received your other letter of the 14th by Express; I have therefore only now to observe that I entirely approve of your plan of drafting a sufficient number of the ablest Men to make up the Complement ordered from your Regiment in case there is a deficiency of Volunteers.
