I am intending to make a march to Morrow Night at the Hour of Six, so that with Your Excellency’s approbation, I with my Company may be at VAN TASSEL’s House by Two oClock the following Morning, where there is a pretty Large Nest of Rebels, consisting of Committees, Cols, Majs, Capts. &c such a Commixture of People to the amount of Eighty or Ninety in Number are now at that place.

I should be glad to have an Officer with about Thirty Men of any other Corps along with me to Support my rear.

I also should be glad that your Excelly. would be pleased to order a party of an Hundred Men, (if they might be spared) to march from the Bridge about One oClock, as Far as Col. PHILLIPS to be there posted by break of Day, in order to cover my retreat.

My return (I expect) will be about 12 oClock.

I beg Your Excelly. woud. be pleased to Grant me this request, that my People may have a little Work.

I am, Sir Your Excelly’s most obedt.
