JACOB BLOUNT TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Contentney June 13th 1778.

Sir:

Have sent by Mr. Edwards 311 Shirts which is all we had to make, but what has been made and sent at different times to Halifax by Mr. Craike's order. Have on hand three barrels of good Pork packed yesterday with half Bushel salt in each barrel, if you are in want for the troops you may have it, price twenty pounds pr barrel, which is the price in New Bern packed or 18 pounds without packing. We have not had any accounts from Reading but must expect to see him in a few days from this I should think.

From Sir,
Your mo. ob. Servt,
JACOB BLOUNT.
