GOV. CASWELL TO THOS. CRAIGE, ESQ.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Kingston, 8th Septr, 1777.

Sir:—

Lieut. Col. Dauge of the 10th Battalion has orders, to proceed immediately to Wilmington with a detachment from his Battalion & carriages sufficient to bring off the remainder of the magasine; the ton of gun-powder with what lead this detachment can't bring away must be removed from Wilmington to a place of greater security. On that subject I shall write to Gen. Ashe, whose directions in respect to these matters you will be pleased to attend to. I shall be obliged to you to furnish me with an account of what you deliver Col. Dauge, and have you dispose of the remainder.

I am, &c.,
RICHARD CASWELL.
