GOV. P. HENRY, OF VA., TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Wmsburgh, July 9th, 1777.

Sir:—

I beg leave to mention the case of Mr. Delaporte, a French Gentleman, to your Excellency. He was given to understand that several Frenchmen might be recruited in your State, and set out from hence on that business. I am sorry to hear he is so unlucky as to get into a quarrel, the consequences of which I hear are serious. I shall esteem it a favour if you'll please to take notice of him, and render him every proper assistance.

With great regard, I have the honor to be, Sir,
Your most ob'd. servant,
P. HENRY.
His Excellency Richard Caswell.
