Letter from Richard Caswell to Cosimo de Medici
Caswell, Richard, 1729-1789
March 27, 1778
Volume 13, Page 73

[From Executive Letter Book.]

New Bern 27th March 1778.

I had your letter of the 20th March Inst. and should be very glad to do any thing in my power to forward the recruiting business, but I have received no authenticated account that our light Horse are to be augmented. If you have any Resolution of Congress or orders from the General or any of your Superior officers, you will do well to send the same to me. The Assembly is to meet on Monday week, and if any difficulty shall arise in this business, it will be a proper time to apply for the assistance of that Body. I know of no officers or other persons in this State on whom I can draw for public money but the Treasurer.

I am Sir,
Your most obedient,
