GOV. CASWELL TO PETER MALLETT ESQ.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Kingston, 20th Nov. 1778.

Sir:

Your favor of the 15th Current came to hand yesterday. I furnished your Brother £10,000 which I flatter myself will answer your purpose in purchasing provisions for the present.

Your case respecting the draft has been laid before the Council who have advised a discharge to be granted you which is enclosed. Mr. Estes and Mr. Porterfield, they think, must submit to the order of the Military either by obtaining the opinion of the Board of officers for their discharge, marching or procuring substitutes.

I hope to see you at Elizabeth Town about the first of December. In the mean time I am with great esteem Sir, your most obedt. Servt.

R. CASWELL.
