C. S. J.

[Council to Murdock.]

January Ist 1777
Sir, We received your's of the 28th of December but know
not how to give any certain answer, Congress having made
no written requisition to us relative to the militia, nor have
they in any manner explained to us the destination of those
Troops. The militia are to move forward on the requisition
of the Honourable Congress; and no question if you apply to
them, or to your Brigadier but they will inform you of every
thing necessary or proper to be known. We are sorry to
find the militia so very backward, perhaps the news of the
victory lately obtained (a narrative of which you will find
inclosed in the inclosed hand-bill) may serve as a spur to the

C. S. C.
No. 78.
