Richmond May 25th 1782


I did myself the Honor to inclose Your Excellency a return by the last post of the troops at Cumberland; since that time a detachment from the Eastern Shore has got in, The return I do myself the Honor to inclose—I flatter myself as soon as the promis’d Clothing arrives that I shall be able to equip & send in 200 Men.

The House of Assembly are [now] sitting, but have done nothing of consequence yet, but [entering] into some Spirited resolves against any private negotiations with the Enemy, or negotiations of any kind contrary to our alliances & foederal union—They likewise resolve to exert the whole power of the State against the Enemy this Campaign—There are letters in Town from General Greene dated the 6th of this Month, but contain nothing new. I have the Honor to be with the highest respect Your Excellency’s Most Obedt humble servant
