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

Halifax, 5th March, 1777.

Dear Sir:—

I arrived here a few days ago on my way to Newbern, but find myself so indisposed that I've determined not to proceed. I propose to stay here until I can be informed whether you have a majority to proceed to business.—Charles Robb (Mariner) intends to apply for leave to be exchanged in the State of Virginia, and agreeable to advertisement in the Virginia Gazettee it appears he may be exchanged for a better man, should the Council direct will your Excelly be pleased to forward his permit by the first opportunity. I remain with great esteem yours sincerely,

THOS. EATON.
His Excellency Richard Caswell.
