GEN. ALEX. LILLINGTON TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

July 8th, 1779.

Please your Excellency.
Sir:

This will be handed to you by Col. Wingate, who waits on your Excellency, I believe. to lay his grievances before you. It is my opinion he never would have taken this journey had it not have been owing to the late ill success of the Enemy to the Southward. I believe it is a long while since he has been so far from his home before; he complains much of the backwardness of his Officers; he may add, that of the men, too.

I am, Sir,
Your Excellency's most obedient humble Servant,
ALEX. LILLINGTON.
