GOV. CASWELL TO MRS. MILLER.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Newbern 17th Febry 1778.

Madam:

I have taken the opinion of the Council in respect to your request, who think themselves not justifiable in recommending to me, the granting the same. They think such a measure would tend to violate the Laws of the State. I am therefore under the disagreeable necessity of informing you that I cannot grant you permission to carry out of the State any of Mr. Miller's property.

I am madam, your most obedient servant.
R. CASWELL.
