GOV. CASWELL TO GEN. SKINNER.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Dobbs, 6th Aug't, 1777.

Dear Sir:—

I have this day received from the Continental Treasury for the use of this State three hundred thousand dollars, and as I wish the Troops to be immediately paid off that they may proceed to the No'ward, I am to request you will come out to my house in this County, where the money is lodged, to receive your proportion, as soon as you possibly can. I shall immediately send an express to Gen. Ashe, and imagine both you and he will be here by this day week.

I am &c.,
RICHARD CESWELL.
