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

North Carolina, 22d September 1778.

Sir:

At the instance of Messrs. Martin de Breteuil, de Samboeuf, de Labadie, Laval de Belvieu, Sureau & de Carouet. I beg leave to acquaint you that these Gentlemen were appointed officers in the French Regiment lately commanded by Col. Chariol. They are going to the grand American Camp, and I believe wish to be employed in that army there. They were all well recommended to me, but my small acquaintance with them will not allow me to be more particular, this therefore I beg to be considered only as an introduction for them to your Excellency, for whom I have the honor to entertain the highest regard and esteem, and am Sir, your Excellency's most ob. & very huml. servt.

R. CASWELL.
