ADAM GASKINS TO R. COGDELL AND OTHERS.
[From Executive Letter Book.]


Ocracock, June 20th, 1779.

Gentlemen;

I take this opportunity to inform you that there is one small schooner coming to New Bern, which we all judge to be a Privateer. There are two Brigs at the Bar now, which we expect will come in every minute. Yesterday there was one Ship, one Schooner and one Sloop at the Bar. So no more at present.

ADAM GASKINS.

P. S. Be upon your Guard, for I expect their intention is to plunder New Bern.
