LETTER FROM R. CASWELL TO JOHN ASHE, ESQ.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

New Bern 8th March 1777.

Dear Sir:—

In pursuance of the advice of the Council of State, I am to request that you pay to the orders of the Com'rs. of the Iron Works, the following sums: to wit: one draft in favour of Montgomery for £223.17.1., one other draft in favour of Wilcox for £4043.2.3., and any further sums they may have occasion for, not exceeding £2500. It appearing to the Council that it is absolutely neccessary that the works should be carried on with spirit, they were induced thereby to recommend the above measure, which I flatter myself you will comply with when in your power.

I am Dr. Sir, your most abed?. serv't.,
R. CASWELL.
JOHN ASHE, ESQ.
