Description
General Gates will give him a detailed account of the defeat at Camden; he himself has ordered the scattered troops and the militia to meet at Charlotte; arms must be sent to camp; he sent Dr. Williamson, with a flag, to the British camp for a list of the killed, wounded and prisoners; suggests that the Assembly, if the Governor can get no quorum at Hillsborough, might meet at the camp at Charlotte where the members belonging to the army could attend; if no assembly meets the Governor and Council will undoubtedly come thither; speaks of officers who, he fears, are lost; refers him to the bearer Major [Richard Dobbs] Spaight for further particulars.
