Summary Col. Cuthbertson's letter relative to loading has been received. Parker immediately procured a wagon and went up and found the cannon and boxes. Parker expects that they will arrive safely in Pittsburgh in a few days provided the Indians do not take them. The company in Chambersburgh had made a contract for a large quantity of balls and shot which is the same kind that Parker has on hand in his store.
