COL. DAVID SMITH TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Cross Creek, 26th July, 1777.

May it please your Excellency:

Should you, Sir, think it necessary for the good of the State to appoint any number of Troops to be kept here until the Laws shall be executed,—I beg leave to recommend the bearer, Mr. Edward Winslow to your notice as a Commissary for the same, he is a good member of society, and can more effectually supply the men in that way than any person here who would take that trouble.

I have the honor to be,
Your Excellency's most obed't. and very humble Serv't.,
DAVID SMITH.
His Excellency Richard Caswell.
