You will immediately march with the Orange Detachment under your command to Cox's Mill and secure all the flour there for his Majesty's service. You may on your march make small Detachments to apprehend any of the outlaws that may be sculking in the Neighbourhood—after the performance of these services you are to join the army at the upper Ford of Deep River.
