At Camp Buck, 10 September, 1781
I request you, Sir, to leave tomorrow morning at four o'clock with the hussars which you command in order to deliver them to Baltimore where my troops will indicate to you the site which you must occupy. I inform you that you will stay after tomorrow. The bread which is due to you for tomorrow will be made for you at your arrival in Baltimore, if we can supply you with it at half rations for the morning. It will be [illegible] here for you before your departure. The employers of Messierus Nad or Thetcatte, will furnish for your supply flour and straw at your arrival in the same way as [illegible]. I have the honor to be with a very sincere attachment, Sir, your very humble and very obedient servant.
to Monsieur Monsieur d'Arrot colonel commandant of the legion de Lauzan
