This will be handed you by Mr Willson who is instructed to forward some stores for the hospital department. There is some Coffee at Hillsborough which must be applied for the use of that department. If it should be State property and they will not spare it for the hospital you must impress it. Some Sugar must also be obtained. Mr Willson will mention some circumstances relative to two barrels of Sugar which must be delivered him, or an equal quantity must be seized. I am Dr Sir
