Cambden, 25th Sept., 1781.

Hond. Sir:

As my wound is mending apace, tho' not my health, & the Surgeon informs me I am well enough to travel on horseback, & probably may get the use of my leg as formerly, in a few Months, I have to request a Furlough, or rather leave of absence, until Health & the Aff. permits me to return, then 'twill give me the greatest satisfaction imaginable, to re-enter my regt.

I have further (Dr. General) to request the Discharge of my Father's Waggons, now in your Brigade, agreeable to his orders to me in a Letter I have received since I have been at this place. If with convenientry it can be affected, or if not both, one of them at least, the one that came with Major Blount.

In the interim give me leave to subscribe myself with
great respect Hon. Sir,
Your Most Obedt. Hum. Servt.,
A. L.
