PREST. RAWLIN LOWNDES OF S. C. TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Charles Town, May 29th 1778.

Sir:

I take the liberty to enclose to your Excellency a hand-bill just published here, being late advices received from Martinique, it may possibly be new to you. I congratulate you sir on the prospect we have that France is now determined to act and avow her part in favor of America. I always thought she would forbear to do it until she was pushed by circumstances. I thank your Excellency for the intelligence you was so kind to give me by your favor of the 6th inst and your attention to Dr. Oliphant.

I have the honor to be with great regard sir,
your Exclly's mo ob servt
RAWL. LOWNDES.
