COL. JOHN WILLIAMS TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Camp at Quankey, 19th Augt, 1777.

Sir,

We have no paymaster in camp: some time ago I informed your excellency that Mr. William Pasture, a paymaster to one of the Regiments, was at Halifax, and willing to undertake to pay off the Troops under my command, if he could be supplied with money for that purpose: he lives at Newbern. There is three or four vacancies in my Regiment, please inform me whether or not, you will fill up commissions to such as I should recommend to fill these vacancies.

I am your Excellency's
mo. obt. Hble. Ser't.,
JOHN WILLIAMS.
