The Papers of General Nathanael Greene

To Major William Polk.

Has his letter of 6 February [not found]. NG's message to Polk is similar to the one he gave Francis Lock et al., this date, above: Gen. Daniel Morgan is not able to take command of the North Carolina militia, and Gen. Andrew Pickens has gone to organize resistance in the rear of the British army. NG lacks "good and constant intelligence of the enemies motions"; asks Polk to collect intelligence and let him know how many men are gathering in the enemy's rear and their terms of service.[1]
