Description
Warns Buford that resistance is vain, as he is nearly surrounded by 700 mounted troops with artillery, and Cornwallis is within a short march; offers terms similar to those accepted at Charles Town; expects an answer in half an hour; if the terms are accepted, arms must be piled in one hour.
