The Papers of General Nathanael Greene

Major Ichabod Burnet To Captain Joseph Marbury.

Has Marbury's letter of 16/18 January. Wants the osnaburg made into overalls "as soon as possible," with payment in iron as Marbury proposed. [R.] Smith promises to send Marbury 1,800 overalls and 340 shirts by 30 January.[1] NG asks "how many" Marbury will "have" from the linen that was given to him.[2] The prisoners at Salisbury "are ordered" to Virginia. Marbury should assist Maj. [Edmund] Hyrne, who "will superintend this business."[3] He is also to have his own "business in a train" so that he can join the army "on the shortest notice." Is to complete the stockade and send overalls and shirts to "Capt Hambleton."[4]
