GOV. CASWELL TO DR. COOLEY.
[From Executive Letter Book.]


Dobbs 30th June 1778.

Sir:

Your letter of the 28th Inst. I received, in answer to which, I must observe that at present I consider you as a Surgeon in the service of the United States, if you are so, of course, you cannot receive the appointment now applied for, and in that case I recommend it to you to go on immediately to Head Quarters where Surgeons are much wanted and indeed were so when you left Camp. If you are discharged from that service, I shall glad to be informed, your letter shall be laid before the Council who meet two days hence and what resolution they take respecting the appointment and medicines you shall be informed of.

I am, Sir,
Your mo. ob. Servt.
R. CASWELL.
