GOV. CASWELL TO WILLIAM SHARP, ROBERT LANIER AND JOSEPH WINSTON ESQUIRES OR EITHER OF THEM —SALISBURY DISTRICT.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Dobbs County 30th March 1778.

Gentlemen:

The enclosed Commission would have been sent you long ago, but for want of a certain conveyance. It goes now by one Mr. Gibson, who promises to forward it by a safe hand to Mr. Sharp.

In order to enable you to hold the treaty mentioned in your Commission, you may draw on me for any sum, not exceeding one thousand pounds. I wish you success in the business, and am, Gentlemen,

Your most obedient servant,
R. CASWELL.
