Copy of a Letter sent to the County-Lieutenants of Fairfax, Prince-William, and Culpeper. Gentlemen. Fort Loudoun: June 16th 1757. This moment the enclosed is come to my hand, with another letter much more particular, but too long for me to copy, as I think no time shou’d be lost in transmitting intelligence of this important nature.

Your favors of the 17th & 19th instant I have received. Captains Fairfax & Minor arrived here with their companies on tuesday last.
