GOV. CASWELL TO HON. PRESIDENT LAURENS.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

North Carolina 14th September 1778.

Sir:

Give me leave to introduce to your notice Monsr. Mountflorence, who was a Captain in a French Regiment directed to be raised in this State, but the General Assembly finding it impracticable to complete the Regiment disbanded the same, by which means he is rather distressed, and being well recommended to me by the field officers of his Regiment as a brave experienced officer, if he cannot consistently obtain an appointment in the army of the United States, I flatter myself he will do honor to the service, please to excuse the freedom I have taken, and believe me to be with the utmost respect Sir, your most respect Sir,

your most Ob. & very huml. Servt.
RICHARD CASWELL.
