General Waddell,

I have made a Requisition of thirty good Steers and twenty Barrels of good Flour from the Inhabitants of Abbot's Creek for the use of the Army to be delivered at George Miller's by the 30th Instant. I therefore desire you will appoint some person to take charge of these articles and bring them on for the use of the Troops under your command.
