Sir:

Permit me to introduce to your Excellency Monsr. Le Baron de Bonstetien who had the honor of being appointed Lieutenant Colonel of French Regiment, lately disbanded here. He was appointed whilst in South Carolina where he raised a considerable number of recruits and is extremely well recommended, by Gentlemen of the first character there. From the little acquaintance I have with him I am induced to consider him as a Gentleman, as such I take the liberty of recommending him to your Excellency.

I have the honor to be with the greatest regard & esteem Sir, your Excellency's mo. ob. & very huml. Servt.
R. CASWELL.
