The Papers of General Nathanael Greene


Captain William Pierce to Captain Joseph Marbury

Sir

I am directed by Genl Greene to inform you that your steps & the measures which you have pursued meet with his entire approbation.
It is the wish of the General that you should send forward the Stores to some place where they may be out of the reach of the Enemy, & let Captain Gamble proceed with them. Your own prudence upon this occasion will be the best director. I am sir

Your mo: obt servt
