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

Philadelphia 13th Oct. 1778.

Sir:

On the 7th Inst. I had the honor of writing to your Excellency by Dugan—since which I have not been favored with any of your letters—within the present enclosure will be found an Act of Congress of yesterday's date, for encouraging true Religion and good Morals—and for the suppression of such Entertainments and diversions as have a contrary tendency.

I have the honor to be with very great regard and esteem Sir, your Excellency's Ob. humb. servant,
HENRY LAURENS, Presd't Congress.
