THOS. CHADWICK TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Beaufort, 11th April 1778.

Sir:

Agreeable to your Excellency's instructions to me I waited on Capt. Cottineau, and have with him fixed on a proper place for a Guard to be placed at, about half way between the Bay and Inlet, it being the most convenient to alarm the Country from, and have agreed on the proper signals to be given with Capt. Cottineau, the minutes of which I send your Excellency enclosed.

I have given copies to the several Captains, and shall be ready upon every occasion to push the Militia forward for the common defense, and am with due regard,

Your Excellency's Obedt. Hume. Servt.
THOS. CHADWICK.
