LETTER FROM J. RUTLEDGE TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Sir:

In consequence of a recommendation from the Privy Council, the honorable Mr. Drayton, a member of that board, waits on the Convention of North Carolina to solicit aid of men from that state for the defence of this. I doubt not that proper attention will be paid to his application, and hope it will meet with success.

I am, sir,
Y'y very h'ble serv't,
J. RUTLEDGE.

Chas. Town, Nov. 6th, 1776.
The Honble, The President of the Convention of No. Carolina.
