order forward immediately to the Camp the two first Classes
of the Militia of your County, such of them as have good
Arms had better carry them but there need be no delay on
that head, as we expect the Arms Canteens and Tents belong-
ing to this State now used by the Militia in Camp will amply
supply those of your County who are now going out. We
beg there may be no delay as it would in all probability be
