to Elk; on that Consideration, and the Demands of the Soldiery for
Provisions, we desired him to deliver the Beef to John Crisall the
Issuing Commissary at this Post. We understand that Philip Casson
Commissary of Caroline County, has a large Quantity of Salt be-
longing to the Public; we would have you apply to him, if it can be
conveyed to you with any Degree of Convenience; if not to be pro-

ciency of 8,709lbs
