[Council to James Calhoun, Esqr.]

We received your Favor of the 1st Instant. It is our desire that
five or six Barrels of the best fine white Biscuit should be immediately
baked or procured for the use of the Marquis and his Family. If the
Vessels impressed at Baltimore to transport the Troops should sail
before the Biscuit can be got ready, we would have it sent here. We
shall in Future Trouble you to impress Vessels and Carriages, indeed
we only expected that you would direct the proper Officer to do it.


We are well assured that Cornwallis is retreating and that General
Greene is pursuing him. The Militia of Virginia have turned out in
great Numbers and with great Alacrity. They have surpassed the
Expectations of the most sanguine. It is said General Green is much
Stronger than Cornwallis and the Baron Steubend who was intended
to reinforce General Green has received Order from him not to join
him, but to gain a Pass on the Part to Wilmington in Case Corn-
wallis should bend his Course that way. It is also said that Col Lee
has got round Cornwallis and is animating the Militia.
