SAMUEL CORNELL TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Dr Sir:—

I am much obliged to you for the Indulgence you have given me of a few days more, but I expect to sail on Sunday next agreeable to the first orders.

I am also very thankful for the papers you enclosed. The eleven Barrels of Indigo of Mrs. Edwards, was put on board yesterday, as soon as you was pleased to give permission. It will be attended with inconvenience to unstow it and take in tent, yet if the Governor cannot with propriety let it go—as it is on board—it shall at all events be immediately landed. I have sent my servant for an answer to this port,

and am with great respect Dr Sir,
your mo. obdt. huml servt.
SAMUEL CORNELL.
