COL. JAMES KENAN TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Duplin, June 6th 1778.

Sir:

The volunteers and Drafts for this County have elected Mr. Theophilus Williams their Captain, in consequence of which he waits on your Excellency for a Commission, at the same time is somewhat doubtful of his appointment being incompatible with his commission as Lieutenant in the regular service. I shall be much obliged to your Excellency to inform me by Mr. Williams if there being any probability of money being got for the men in a short time.

I am sir with due respect your Excellency's most obedient and very humble servant.
JAMES KENAN.
