The Papers of General Nathanael Greene

To Colonel John Gunby.

Gunby should be ready to move "all the public stores from Hillsborough on the shortest notice."[1] NG presumes that the prisoners there have been "removed" to Virginia. Allows two British officers to go to Charleston, S.C., on parole; a "carefull person must attend them." The Continental and state troops at Gunby's post are to rejoin their regiments. Gunby is to send to Guilford all the arms, flints, cartridges, entrenching tools, oars, and spirits that he can in lightly loaded wagons, which can travel fast. He should impress what he needs "to execute this business."
Draft (MiU-C) 2 pp. The second page of the draft was written over several lines of a note in NG's hand that reads: "General Greene desires the forage Master to issue to the bearer forage for four horses."
    [1.] In his first letter to Gunby of 11 February (PGNG, 7: 280), NG gave orders to move the stores.
