Goudy writs me that he has no Beacon, Gallman Ac. me of 2100 he has purchased and now on the Road, if the supply your Excellency mentions arrives sometime next month we may do well enough, there is a great deal of provisons exp__ed besides the _ayl__ allowance by the Indians who are going to war and others continually at the Fort, I find my presenceis wanted at fort Prince George where I have reason to believe the stores of provisions are not ménaged as I could wish, if pofsibly I can I will take a trip there very soom.
