Your favors of the 9th and 17th of January are just come to hand, by Major Clough and by the Post.

I can only say that I am laid under all the obligations to you, that a man can be to another, and shall exert every nirve, and spair no pains to be adequate to...
This is the fouth day of my being in this disagreeable place, making application to the Governor and Council, for the use of their Factories at Fredricksburg, which I have just obtain’d. I shall set out tomorrow for Petersburgh to get a part of my Saddles made there, and from thence I shall go to Ronoak in North Carolina, to perchase Horses; the price of them being so exorbitant here, that it...
I am a few days retur[ne]d from the Southward, where I have a prospect of geting my horses.

Pages and Cornet Baylor’s, and seventy eight Horses, which are pretty well traind. Most of the officers have got some men, and a few of them have...
Your favor of the 25th of april came to hand by the last post, it’s not requireing an immediate answer, I defer’d it until the present opportunity, flattering myself that by this time, our Assembly would of done something towards filing up our Regiments, with which I should of been pleas’d to of informed you, They have done nothing towards it as yet. it is now the only method left to compleat...

I receiv’d by last post your favor of the 5th instant, and shoul[d] then of answerd it, but was prevented by my being very much indispos’d of an obstinate fever. enclosd I receiv’d your Warrant, for twenty thousand Dollars, and hope to render a satisfactory account of them.
