COL. JAMES HOGUN 7TH REGT. TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Halifax, June 23d 1778.

Dr. Sir:

I waited on Col. Sumner the 13th Inst. and acquainted him with your orders, he promised to send a person off immediately to Col. Thackston and desired me to attend the lower Districts, but as I have seen a Resolve by Capt. Blount, wherein the Troops are to stop where your Excellency shall please to direct, and knowing that several of the Counties in the District of Hillsboro have marched, I have sent a man to receive your Orders, which shall be punctually obeyed.

The Troops from the Counties of Martin & Pitt are here. Halifax and Northampton meets this day, and I am informed that many others are on their march to this place.

I am Sir, with due respect your mo. huml. servt.
JAMES HOGUN.
