I received yours by Lieutenant Lemon, and am sorry to find that the Carolina Beeves are so unfit for Slaughtering: of this I was informed in a late Letter from Colonel Stephen: in consequence I desired him to assist you with his advice, either to kill & salt, or feed them this winter; as Mr Dick entered into contract with Shepherd, whose all I believe, depends upon my confirming or rejecting...

Henry Campbell, whom George Mercer ordered on 11 Dec. to conduct wagons up from Alexandria and who deserted at Winchester on 24 Dec. after being accused of stealing from the wagons.

Instructions for Mr Commissary Walker. You are to lay in at Cockes and Ashby’s Forts, three months provision. As I can not yet determine where Store and Smoke-Houses are to be built; I would have you do the best you can, until you hear from me again.

As the contention about the command is risen to the disagreeable height it now is; and would probably, if not timely prevented, be attended with very bad consequences to the public: I solicited leave, which is obtained, to visit the General, and represent all those matters to him. And accordingly I set out on monday next. When I saw you last, you proposed as a thing which you believed might be...

As the Militia of the several Counties will march to-morrow morning; Colonel Washington desires you will prepare every thing—that they may not be delayed.

Let the spare...

Bouquet last Night containing the Paragraph following. “Please to write to Mr Walker to send Us as soon as possible a supply of Cattle: The Calculation upon Paper will starve Us.” I have lost no time in transmitting this to you.
