Description
Has found it necessary to contract in Pennsylvania for wagons and horses to attend him over the mountains, and realizes the inconvenience of there being no road from Philadelphia to Will's Creek; it is of great importance to have free communication with Pennsylvania to facilitate the march of any troops or convoys he may require; does not think he can move from Fort Cumberland till that work is done; asks Gov. Morris to have the road made at once, and if the Assembly will not pay for it, the expense must be charged to the public account.
