GOV. CASWELL TO MR. FRANCIS BRICE.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

New Bern 23rd April 1778.

Sir:

No Lottery Tickets are to be disposed of after the last of this month, the Lottery being ordered by Congress to commence drawing the first of May. The Tickets unsold I am directed to send to the managers or Board of Treasury.

-------------------- page 102 --------------------

I therefore request you will immediately send such of the Tickets as yet remain on your hands of those I had the honor to commit to your disposal. The expense of an express shall be paid if no direct opportunity by a safe hand.

I am Sir, your mo. ob. servt.
R. CASWELL.
