Warren County, April 39th, 1781.


I wrote youa a few days ago respecting the drafts of the district of Salisbury, remaning in Salisbury until further orders, since when I have received several expresses from General Greene. You are to march the drafts of Salisbury district to Harrisburg in Granville County by companies officered, but should all of the Counties of the district rendezvous in a day or two, of the time appointed by the Brig. Genl'. of the district. then it would be necessary that you march them immediately (and with waggons in proportion to the number of men, as ordered by congress if possible) to Harrisburgh.
