COL. ARCH RICHARDSON TO GOVERNOR CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Suffolk, April 1st, 1779.

Hon'ble Sir:

Capt. Edward Leger accompanies a number of arms and a quantity of ammunition, intended for the army, under the command of his Excellency, Genl. Lincoln. His first stand will be at Brunswick, from which place you'l receive this. I think it highly necessary Capt. Leger should be furnished with an escort of at least one hundred men from thence to the place of his destination. Capt. Leger is well recommended and worthy of notice.

I am, hon'd Sir,
Your Mo. Ob. Servt.,
ARCH'D RICHARDSON,
A. Q. M. G.
