Dear Sir

I have attended to your request of the 30th Ulo delivered by General Stark—The NewHamp. Quota for the three Battalions are to be draughted the 4th Instant and rendezvous at Winchester Amherst and Kingston, to which places Officers are already ordered to receive them and to whom I have now sent further instructions by the General to obey such orders as he may give them—The Court have requested me to send another Officer to Springfield by the 10th to receive the whole, which I think may arrive by the 14th.

New England seem once more awake and I hope they may not again slumber till the fulfilment of our Purposes. I am with much esteem your very hble Obt Sert

Enoch Poor

P.S. Since the foregoing was written I have consented to let Colo. Cilley go with a view to forward on the Militia at the particular desire of Genl Stark and hope it will meet your Excellency’s Approbation.
