MR. WM. BRYAN TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Bare Garden, July 20th, 1779.

Sir:

Enclosed you have a Copy of the accounts you requested, and in copying Richard Caswell, junr's account, I observe a mistake of £320, as you will see 248 Bls. Pork @ £40 per barrel, carried out £9,600, when it amounts to £9,920. I have examined the account I rendered your Excellency when I had the last warrant, and it stands in the same manner, so I think there is that sum due Rd. Caswell & Co., if the 248 Bbls. was the quantity of Pork delivered. Perhaps you may find where the mistake is, and it may be rectified when I come to Kingston.

I am, Sir, your humbl. Serv't,
WM. BRYAN.
