GOV. CASWELL TO HEZ'H ALEXANDER, EPHM BREVARD & ABRAHAM ALEXANDER, ESQS. MECKLENBURG.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Dobbs, 15th Sept. 1777.

Gentlemen:—

Your letter of the 4th current I received, and at the meeting of the Council, will do myself the pleasure to lay the same before that Board, who with myself have a right to say whether the bond you mention shall be forfeited in case of Mr. Ochiltree's not complying with conditions, but in no other case have they or myself any right to intermeddle in these matters. You will therefore be pleased to do, in your own Court, what you think just and right. The result of the Council I will inform pr first opportunity.

Mean time I am &c.,
RICHARD CASWELL.
