COL. ANTHY WARD TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Wilmington, Febry 23d 1778.

Sir:

I wrote your Excellency some time ago to send me in six Blank Commissions for the officers of two companies, but never received any as yet. But if your Excellency pleases to send them in I will take care to fill them up. I should have sent in their names, but as yet I am unacquainted with them. There is a Flag of Truce arrived in our River from New York, which I stopt, and put a Guard on Board, and then sent to Genl Ashe, to acquaint him of it and he desired me to continue the same 'till he has orders from your Excellency. I am Sir

Your most obedient humble Servant,
ANTHY WARD.
