HENRY YOUNG TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Wilmington, September 9th, 1777.

Sir:—

As myself and Mr. Charles Jewkes propose setting off for Philadelphia with a considerable quantity of indigo and deerskins, which are to be transported by land, from this State, must beg leave to solicit the favour of your Excellency to grant us such permission as you think will be sufficient to protect our wagons from being pressed, as also ourselves from being stopped; and am with the utmost respect & esteem

Your Excellency's very obedt. Humble Servant,
HENRY YOUNG.
