THOS. McKEAN TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Dover, Oct. 23d, 1777.

Sir:—

From our former acquaintance as members of Congress, I beg leave to introduce Lieut.-Col. Forster of Newcastle County to you. He is a Gentleman well known to me, and a steady friend to the United States of America. The death of a brother who resided in the State of North Carolina, occasions his journey thither. Any civilities shown to the Colonel will confer a favor upon your Excellency's most

obdt Servt.,
THOS. McKEAN.
