GOV. CASWELL TO MR. THOMAS OGDEN.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Dobbs, 10th Febry 1778.

Sir,

Capt. Parker from Bermuda is permitted to take on Board 80 or 90 barrels of Pork that quantity being short of the price of salt he brought in. The Naval officer I have written to, who will clear him out. I still want some salt, for the public and will take the quantity you mention and furnish a proportionable part of the Cargo, on your signifying what the same is. I can do nothing with the Frenchman respecting the powder, until the meeting of the Council which will be in a few days.

I am Sir, your obedt Servt.
R. CASWELL.
