Dobbs County, 12th May 1778.


The Bearer is sent express to Congress or rather the Treasury Board, with papers I could not get ready before you left New Bern, I have wrote to Col. Glasgow to send this with one Williams who will be a good hand to return with you. Pray let me entreat you to be as expeditious in returning as possible. You know the urgent necessity there is for your being thus pressed by me. If anything happens that you cannot get the money to set out so soon as expected pray despatch the Bearer with information to me. If you can on your return buy me two or three dozen knives and forks good if to be had, tho' any will do, be so kind as to do it, and obliged Sir,

Your very humble Servt.
