Dear Sir:—

Inclosed is a copy of the Resolves of Council respecting the conduct of the Commissioners of the Iron works.—You have their approbation, as well as mine.—I have wrote to Mr. Treasurer Ashe to pay your drafts in favour of Montgomery and Wilcox, and also any further sums you may want, not exceeding £2500. This I hope he will comply with, and enable the Comm'rs, to carry on the works with spirit.

I am, dear Sir, your most obed. serv't.
R. CASWELL.
