GEN. ISAAC GREGORY TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Camden County, 19th Aug't, 1777.

Sir:—

Mr. James Ferebee being appointed 2d Maj'r in the Camden Reg't. of Militia, he being put over every Capt. in the Reg't, thought it might be disagreeable, gave his Com'n. up, and it was agrd on in our Court Martial that Mr. John Gray should have that Com'n as being the oldest Capt.; therefore I trouble you, if think proper, to send a Commission to him. Col. Dauge will take care to bring or send it down. The news here is that there is two hundred sail of shipping in Chesapeak Bay, expected to be part of Lord Howe's fleet.

I am Sir with due respect yr obt. st
ISAAC GREGORY.
