CAPT. J. SITGREAVES TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

New Bern 1st September 1778.

Sir:

I take this the earliest opportunity of transmitting your Excellency the papers I was to bring down from Hillsboro,' am extremely sorry it was out of my power to call by Kingston with them as I came down, being very much indisposed. I believe all the papers are here, except a letter from Gov. Henry to your Excellency respecting the Naval officers of this State, which was delivered to a Committee appointed to enquire into the conduct of the Naval officers who never reported. I know the member it was delivered to, and shall take care to get it of him next Assembly. I am with all respect

Your Excellency's most humble servant.
J. SITGREAVES.
