The Papers of General Nathanael Greene

To Robert Gillies.

Has Gillies's letter of 18 January. Thinks his asking price for the salt is "exceeding high," but does not know "the state of commerce" and will not decide the matter. When he learns how much money Gen. [Horatio] Gates drew on Maryland and whether the army can "provide" tobacco, he will have someone settle with Gillies "upon terms of equallity."[2]
