Description
Could not send a proper person to Coryell's ferry until the day before; has a poor opinion of the people there and wishes to have the stores out of their hands as soon as possible, the more so as the flour in camp is nearly gone; the sooner Major Gordon can bring the flour the better; expects to leave for Philadelphia in two days.
