GOV. CASWELL TO SAML. CORNELL OR JOHN LONDON ON BOARD THE BRIGANTINE EDWARDS.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

New Bern, 5th December, 1777.

Gentlemen,

Your letter of yesterday I received but previous to my granting you permission to come on shore, 'tis necessary that you bring a flag from his Britanick Majesty's officers, by you mentioned to me. To be ascertained to that end, I send Major John Fillman to whom you will give proper information,

I am Gentlemen, your mo. ob. servt.,
RICHARD CASWELL.
