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

North Carolina, 22d September 1778.

Sir:

Permit me to introduce to you, Messrs. Martin de Breteuil, de Samboeuf, Labadie, Laval de Belvieu, Sureau & de Carouet, as unfortunate Gentlemen, who have been dismissed from the service of the States, by the disbanding of Col. Chariol's Regiment in which they were officers, and were severally well recommended to me. But I dare not recommend them on my own knowledge, having a very slight acquaintance with all of them. They propose going to the Army, and on their way to wait on Congress, if anything be done for them, I believe they need it, and will be grateful.

I have the honor to be with very great respect and esteem, Sir, your mo. Ob. & very huml. Servt.
R. CASWELL.
