Sandy Creek Camp P. M. May 26th 1771.

General Waddell,

I wrote to you this morning to require you to join the Army with the Forces you have raised as soon as possible, should therefore any Impediment prevent this Junction of our Forces on the North side of Deep River I would have you leave the Troops you have assembled to the command of some prudent Officer and wait upon me in Person with all dispatch.
