GOV. CASWELL TO HIS EXCELLENCY GENL. WASHINGTON.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

North Carolina, 14th September 1778.

Sir:

Permit me to use the Freedom of introducing to your Excellency, Monsr. Mountflorence who was a Captain in a french Regiment directed to be raised in this State, but the Assembly finding it impracticable to complete the said Regiment disbanded the same. He is a Gentleman well recommended to me by the field officers of his Regiment. If your Excellency shall think proper to give him an appointment in the army, I flatter myself he will faithfully discharge the duties of the same.

I have the Honor to be with the utmost respect, Sir, your Excellency's most Ob. & very Huml. Servt.
RICHARD CASWELL.
