ROB. SMITH TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Edenton, 10th Novr., 1778.

Sir:

I had the honor of addressing your Excellency of this date jointly with Thomas Benbury Esq. I have now to acknowledge my most shameful neglect in not sending in the Bond for Cunningham's letter of Marque. I now enclose it herewith and hope when I tell you I have been sick and busy and the Lord knows what all, you'll excuse its not more early appearance. Our friend Hewes is just arrived from Philadelphia, brings no news, is as well as you have seen him. With every sentiment of respect, I am

Your Excelly's mo. ob. &c.
ROB. SMITH.
