Your Letter of the 12th Instant we have received, wherein we
observe you have in some Instances contracted for Tobacco, which
Mode to us appears improper and inadmissible, and hope you will alter
those Contracts into Money, and avoid it in Future. The large and
pressing Demands of the Army for Provisions oblige us to request
of you to have all the Cattle collected in your County, drove to George
Town with all possible Dispatch, ready to be forwarded with the
other Cattle. In addition to the Number of Cattle assigned to your
County, we wish and desire you would purchase and collect immedi-
