GOV. CASWELL TO GENL. WM SKINNER.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Kingston 26th Nov. 1778.

Sir:

I have several days past been looking for you and the Detachment from your Brigade. You are much wanted on the business of the Treasury and your Troops to go on. Pray let me hear by the return of Capt. Tarrant or some person to be sent by you or Col. Lamb, immediately on the receipt of this where your men are, their Numbers, arms and Camp necessaries, and also the time they may be expected to arrive at this place. The Troops must move on from hence without them unless they arrive in a very few days.

I am Sir, your mo. ob. Servt.
R. CASWELL.
