CARLOS A. NORTON TO WORTHINGTON

Chillicothe June 1. 1813

Dr Sir,

You have understood, I presume, that Creighton is elected. Tomorrow, I believe, he starts for Washington City.

We have, here, no particular news. About this place, recruiting does not progress rapidly. I believe there are nearly, 300 men recruited for McArthur's regt: There are recruited, for Cass's regt. between 5 and 600 men. Colo. Perkins has accepted.

Gen. Harrison is at Cincinnati: He is expected here in about eight days.

I have just returned from Zanesville. I expect to go there again in two or three weeks. Gen. Dearborn has acquired much credit, on account of tle Capture of York --

I have some desire to know, who is to be appointed Colo of this regt. Perhaps Creighton may endeavour to procure the place for some one of his friends. May be Colo. Henry Brush would accept of it. He certainly will expect, though Creighton, to be Colo. or Marshall, or something else as great. He has been playing aid to the Govr. We hope soon to see what communications are made to Congress; a nd to know what prospect there is of peace.

I am, respectfully,

C. A. Norton.

Hon. Th. Worthington
