J. LUTTRELL TO HIS EXCELLENCY GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

January 10th, 1778.

Sir:

The Assembly of this State at their last sitting resolved that I should have leave to resign my commission in the army, without incurring the penalties prescribed by a former resolve of their houses, which resolve was made to prevent resignations of the officers on the Continental establishment.

Therefore you as commanding officer of this State, will please to accept my resignation as Lieut. Col. of the 9th Regiment, and your Excellency will much oblige your most obedient humble servant.

J. LUTTRELL.
