Sir.
Learning that you purposed sending an Express to Col. Johnson's Camp, I avail myself of the opportunity of proffering through your Excellency to Col. Johnson and the army under his command, inasmuch as they are supposed to be measurably destitute, such supplies of provisions as we have and they may need prior to the arrival of supplies from the East.
Trusting that you will appreciate the sincerity of the motives prompting this Courtesy
I have the honor to remain
Very respectfully Yours &c
