The Papers of General Nathanael Greene

From General Edward Stevens,

He forgot to ask NG, before parting with him "this evening," if the militiamen with Major Anderson could "take charge of the Prisoners" at Hillsborough, N.C., and escort them to Pittsylvania Old Court House, Va.[1] Stevens has few men and many "Invalids"; it would be "very hard" duty for his men to properly guard the prisoners from Salisbury if he must also send a detachment to Hillsborough.[2]
Autograph letter signed (NNPM) 1 p.
    [1.] Maj. Archibald Anderson had taken a detachment of militia to disperse a party of Loyalists on Drowning Creek. (See NG to Anderson, 17 January, PGNG, 7: 136.) Stevens's orders are in NG's letter to him of this date (PGNG, 7: 195-196).
    [2.] No reply from NG has been found.
