LETTER FROM THOS. HART TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Hartford Jany. 28th 1777.

To Gov. Caswell,
May it please Your Excellency, Sir,

The Congress of this State having favoured me with the appointment of Commissary for the 6th Regiment, and finding (after trial made) that it will be very inconvenient for me to provide longer for the said Regim't, hope you will be good enough to receive my resignation in favor of Mr. Peter Mallett on his giving such security as your Excellency shall think proper for the performing of the said service &c.

I am, Dr Sir, Your Excellency's obe'd, serv't,
THOS. HART.
