I enclose you a Warrant for impressing of Teams on the present important occasion—but if there is any other means in Your power of forwarding the Provisions, I would not have military coercion made use of—if this is the only alternative now left to prevent the Army from starving, let the measure be carried into execution immediately with the utmost prudence & precaution. I am Sir Your Most Obedient Servant.
