GOV. R. CASWELL TO MICHL. HILLEGAS ESQ., C. TREASURER.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

No. Carolina, NewBern, 26th March, 1778.
Sir:

In answer to your favor of the first Inst. which I had the honor to receive three days ago. I am to acquaint you that in December last I received per Capt. Medici, Loan Office Certificates to the amount of six hundred and fifty thousand dollars, which with others sent me before, to amount of one hundred thousand dollars more, I delivered to James Green Esq., Treasurer of the Loan Office, the 25th December, the day after his appointment by the General Assembly. I shall communicate your letter to Mr. Green and doubt not he will write to the Board of Treasury as you advise. He has had very little success in putting off the certificates.

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