GOV. CASWELL TO PRESIDENT RUTLEDGE, OF S. C.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

New Bern 19th April, 1777.

Dear Sir:—

The packet I have the honor to transmit to your Excellency herewith, I received by express last evening from Governor Henry, with copies of letters of which I enclose you copies, & most sincerely congratulate you on the accounts they contain. The subject of your letter respecting the Cherokee Indians I have communicated to our General Assembly, which is now sitting here. They have come to no Resolution thereon, but I am in hourly expectation of their taking that matter up; as soon as their determination is made known to me, I will do myself the pleasure to communicate the same to you.

I have the honor to be your Excellency's most obedient humble servant,
RD. CASWELL.
His Excellency President Rutledge
