COL. JOHN SAMPSON TO GOVERNOR CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Sampson Hall, 18th May, 1779.

Dr. Sir:

I had the honor of receiving your Excellency's favor, and am greatly obliged to the Assembly for their compliment in choosing me one of your Board. It gives me great concern that it's not in my power to attend, being at present very infirm and old age creeping fast upon me. I could wish I was a younger man. None would be prouder in serving my Country than,

Sir, your Mo. ob. and very humble Servt.,
JOHN SAMPSON.
Gov. Caswell.
