GOV. CASWELL TO MR. JOHN COURT.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Kingston, 7th Dec. 1778.

Sir:

I am sorry to learn from Col. Perkins you refused furnishing his Regiment with provisions this morning. You cannot have forgotten that yesterday on your receiving orders in writing, that I desired you in case Col. Perkins had no Commissary to furnish his Regiment, and that you promised to do so. I now repeat that request and that you not only furnish him, but all the other Troops who have not a person appointed to furnish and make return to General Ashe (in my absence) at Elizabeth of the different Regiments or Detachments you have furnished, where you will receive further orders, and in case of your wanting money apply to the Paymaster.

I am Sir, your huml. Servt.
R. CASWELL.
