GOV. CASWELL TO CAPT. JOHN VANCE OF THE No CAROLINA ARTILLERY COMPANY.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Newington, 15th September, 1777.

Sir:—

As your company is received into the Continental service, you must in future receive orders from Col. Sheppard, or the officer commanding his Battalion. Your Company is to march with that Regiment from Kingston the 25th day of September instant, and pursue such orders as may be from time to time given by the commanding officer of the tenth Continental Battalion raised in this State, until you join some Artillery Battalion in the same service or you shall receive orders from an officer of superior command. You will consider this as your orders for the present, and conduct yourself accordingly.

RICHARD CASWELL.
