The Papers of General Nathanael Greene

To General Francis Marion.

He received Marion's letter of 18 January; the "little" skirmishes involving Marion's "people" were "cleaver and do them a great deal of honor." Is sorry there are so few fit horses in Marion's area. The army is in great want; asks him to send fifteen or twenty for "immediate service." Maj. [Edmund] Hyrne, the new commissary of prisoners, has settled the business with Mr. Walter.[1] Requests weekly returns of the Continentals, militia, and horses with Marion.
