GOV. CASWELL TO MESSRS. HEWES & SMITH.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Newbern 21st April 1778.

Gentlemen:

I was favored with your letter of the 9th Inst. with the Lottery Tickets therein mentioned, for which I send you a certificate acknowledging the receipt of them. In your second letter, of the same date, you request me to send you three receipts, supposing, I conjecture that you thereto transmit the certificates directed by Congress to the Treasury Board of Managers. This I apprehend to be my duty, and shall endeavour to comply with it immediately after the last of this month. But if you are desirous of having certified copies of the certificate, let me know and any number you want shall be forwarded to you.

I am gentlemen,
Your mo. ob. servt.
R. CASWELL.
