LETTER FROM R. CASWELL TO A. MACLAINE, ESQ.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

New Bern 8th March 1777.

Dear Sir:—

I have the pleasure to acquaint you that the Council has approved the conduct of the Con'rs. of the Iron works, and advised me to direct the Treasurers to pay their drafts to Montgomery and Wilcox, and also any other sums they may require, not exceeding £2500. A copy of the Council's resolutions I have inclosed in a letter to Capt. Rowan, which I beg the favour of you to forward him; and I have given the necessary directions to Mr. Treasurer Ashe, in a letter I also send to your care addressed to him.

I am, Dear Sir, Your most obed't. serv't.,
R. CASWELL
A. Maclaine, Esq.
