The Papers of General Nathanael Greene

From Colonel Otho H. Williams

Dr Genl

We are now at Mr Bruces seven miles North West from Gilford.
By a report recd this morning I ha[ve] some reason to believe that the British Army marched Yesterday from Salem and had advanc[ed] Six miles between one and two oClock, P. M. But we cannot ascertain with any certainty by what rout. I will search dilige[nt]ly for the Enemy and hope soon to be better informed.
On a Supposition that Coll Tarlton has pushed after the Baggage with Captn Marbury at Dan, I will move in that direction. With great Esteem I am Dr Genl
