GOV. CASWELL TO HON. JAMES IREDELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Kingston 16th June 1778.

Sir:

Your favor of yesterday was delivered me this day, when I immediately laid the same before the Council, who with reluctance have advised my acceptance of your resignation of the office of one of the Judges of the Superior Court, which I also do with as much reluctance as you can well conceive, well knowing your place cannot be supplied by a gentleman of equal abilities and inclination to serve the State in the importance of that office. I am with every respect and esteem dear Sir, your most obedient servant,

R. CASWELL.
