I must beg you will give him every aid in your power to have it compleated as early as possible. I have heard of the mode which the State have adopted for filling up their Regiments of Cavalery. Col Baylor's Regt is also very weak and should be recruited immediately. I am With esteem and respect My dear Baron,
