DR. ALEX. GASTON TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

New Bern 14th June 1778.

Sir:

I have enclosed a Deposition made in presence of W. Davis, by two other persons and myself, on the day the words were spoken, and my own deposition which I drew up since. I asked three Justices in Town, who were witnesses of his conduct, to draw up theirs, but believe they have omitted it. I refer you to Col. Leech's Testimony concerning the whole affair, and his behavior to me since.

I am Sir,
Your mo. ob. huml. servt,
ALEX. GASTON.
