CIRCULAR LETTER OF GOV. CASWELL TO COL. COM'D'G MILITIA IN EACH COUNTY.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Kingston, July 19th, 1779.

Sir:

As it will be impossible for the Commissary to furnish provisions for the regular soldiers and Militia shortly to be marched from the different Counties in the State to the place of Rendezvous in the District, I must request that you will direct those who are to march from your County be furnished, on account of the public, by some person you shall appoint, until they arrive at the General Rendezvous in your District. I will, on your request, grant a warrant to you or the person you shall appoint on the Treasury for a sum sufficient to defray those expenses.

I am, Sir,
Your Mo. Ob. Servt.,
R. CASWELL.
