W. DAY, HENRY TOOMER & ROBERT ELLIS TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Wilmington June 15th 1778.

Sir:

We being appointed Commissioners to repair Fort Johnston, are ready and willing to act, but are informed by Genl. Ashe, he had no money in the Treasury, and cannot inform us where we may. Unless your Excellency will be pleased to furnish us with your special order for the sum allotted by the Assembly to be paid when the money shall arrive from the Norward, the work cannot go on.

Your answer by Col. Blount will oblige your Excellency's mo. ob. huml. servt,

WM. DAY.
HENRY TOOMER.
ROBERT ELLIS.
