Volunteers of Augusta
Savannah Decr. 22d 1781.
Capt. RAAHN of the Ebenezer Militia, having informed Major BOWDEN, that two Women lately from Briar Creek, say a party of the Rebels, are gone towards Medway; and that they are to meet McKay with another party, in the Neighbourhood of Ebenezer, to destroy that Settlement.
I think it necessary to give you this information, that your people may be vigilant, and prepared to receive them, Should they approach your post or that you may act in such other manner, as may Seem likely to promote His Majesty’s Service.
I must beg that you will communicate any intelligence you may receive relative to that matter to me, and also to Major BOWDEN at Abercorn. To whom I am to request you will forward the Enclosed, without loss of time, and order the Dragoon who is the bearer of this, to return as soon as he has fed his horse.
I am Sir, Your most Obedt.
