Sandy Creek Camp May 26th 1771.

Colonel Fanning,

As the badness of the weather yesterday and to day has prevented the Army from marching as intended, I have dispatched off the Rangers with Provisions for your Corps. You will remain on the North side of Deep River until further orders, sending me an account every morning of the state and condition of your Detachment and of all extraordinaries that may happen.
