Sir We refer you to the enclosed, which we request you will
deliver and at the same Time give the necessary Information & As-
sistance to the Commissary in Order to have the Flour removed
as speedily as possible

[Council To the Continental Commissary at the Head of Elk or of
the District including Duck Creek.]

of the Commissioners in Kent, under the Law for the immediate
Supply &ca that the Grain and Flour which he had procured, was
lodged at Duck Creek and that he had wrote to Mr Henry Hollings-
worth he was ready to deliver it to his Order, to which he had
received no Answer. We cannot account for this Delay in forward-
ing the Provision to the Army for which there have been and con-
tinue, such urgent Demands, and are apprehensive some other
Supplies from this State to Duck Creek may be under the same
