To Baron Steuben

My dear Baron

Lt Colonel White who will have the honor to deliver this, has my orders to repair to Virginia, and endeavour to raise his Regiment. He will give you the best information of it's present state. 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,

Your Most Obedient Humble Servant

Nath Greene
