PRESIDENT J. RUTLEDGE OF S. C. TO GOVERNOR CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Charles Town, April 23rd, 1779.

Sir:

The situation of public affairs here and in Georgia is much the same as when I last wrote to you. The Enemy are endeavouring to get the Indians to join them, and I am striving to have as large a number of Militia in the field as I can get. I doubt not that your Representatives have prevailed on the Assembly of North Carolina to augment the aid intended from thence. I am anxious to hear from you on this subject, and hope to have that pleasure soon at Orangeburg, for which place I shall set off the day after to-morrow.

I am, with great regard and esteem, Dr. Sir,
Your Mo. Ob. Servt.,
J. RUTLEDGE.
Gov. Caswell.
