The Papers of General Nathanael Greene

To Colonel John Gunby.

Has Gunby's "letter of the 9th" [not found]. Notwithstanding NG's previous orders, Gunby is to forward to the army various stores, which NG enumerates, "in Waggons lightly loaded," by the nearest and safest route.[1] If the stores have left for Taylor's Ferry, Gunby is to send after them and redirect them. NG is taking this risk because of the "distresses of the Army." No time is to be lost in moving the stores. Gunby should send NG a list of the supplies coming to the army and inform him of the route and who is bringing them.[2] The British are reportedly "moving on the route from Salem to Guilford Court House."[3]
Draft (MiU-C) 3 pp.
