Capt. Waggener Sir: Fort Loudoun, the 25th of April, 1758. I received Orders yesterday from the President, to direct the Captains of the Virginia Regiment to complete their companies, with all possible expedition, to 1,00 Rank & File. Ten pounds, bounty-money, are to be allowed to each recruit; the Officers (reasonable) Expences borne, and the men so enlisted, to be discharged, the first day...
You are Ordered forthwith to march from hence to the South-branch with your own men, and such of Capt. McKenzie’s as are at this place.

I received yours by Captain Spotswood. I was obliged to order the waggons down to Alexandria for Salt, as we had none in store here; which no doubt has detained them longer than you expected. Enclosed I return your Size-roll, as it is not agreeable to the Instructions—a particular description of the men was the chief intent of them, and that you have not attempted. I desire you will make it...
I received yours by Express—and concur in sentiments with the officers of your council: Save that I would have a Subaltern and twenty or twenty-five men sent to the upper Tract, to assist the Settlers in erecting a Fort[.] In this I presume they will give all imaginable assistance; as it is solely intended to promote their safety. If Captain Field’s militia will remain contented, it is...
I have so many places and people to defend; so great calls from every quarter for men, and so little prospects for getting any—that I find it impossible to comply with the act of Assembly, and opinion of the council of War, in building the chain of Forts on the frontiers—You must therefore, notwithstanding all the orders which have heretofore been given, immediately despatch Captain Bell with...
