COL. ROBT. MEBANE, 7TH REGT., TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Hillsborough, June 30th, 1779.

Sir:

As opportunity offers I think it my duty to inform you that I am in a very low state of health; without an alteration must of consequence leave the service. I am sorry to inform you that there are but few Soldiers raised in this District. I have not as yet heard what they are doing in the District of Salisbury. Genl. M. Ramsey informs me that he is to write to you this day; therefore I only inform you that there is not one Continental officer in this district or the district of Salisbury as I know of.

I am, with due esteem,
Your Excellency's ob. humb. Serv't.,
ROBT. MEBANE.
