GOVERNOR CASWELL TO COL. NATHAN BRYAN, JONES.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Kingston, 22d May, 1779.

Sir:

As you have had an opportunity of perusing the Law directing men to be raised for the defence of this and the neighboring States, I shall only request you to attend to the same. The Rendezvous for your men is appointed at So. west Bridge, in the No. East corner of your County, being more convenient for supplying provisions than elsewhere. I shall direct a Continental officer to attend to receive the men, and I entreat you to be punctual in making me a return of the men raised in your County by the 4th day of July at farthest, in order that I may take the necessary measures for making up the deficiency by drafts.

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