COL. GIDEON LAMB, 6TH N. C. REGT., TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Kingston, July 14th, 1779.

May it please your Excellency:

I was requested by some gentlemen in Edenton to inform you

-------------------- page 154 --------------------
that the former Judge Advocate, and martial of the Court of Admirality at Edenton were deceased; and as there is lately some prizes brought into that Port, a Court might soon be necessary; therefore they desire me to recommond to your Excellency Josiah Collins, Esqr., for Judge Advocate, and Mr. James Luten, Martial, which Gentlemen I believe to be well qualified for the said post.

If it should please your Excellency to issue their Commissions, I can readily convey them.

I have the honor to be,
Your Excellency's mo. ob. humb. Serv't,
GIDEON LAMB.
