GOV. R. CASWELL TO COL. JOS. WILLIAMS.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Kingston, 13th August, 1779.

Sir:

Herewith you will receive three blank militia Commissions to be by you filled up in the same manner as the former sent you for the Officers of the Guard to the Commissioners for extending the boundary line between this State and Virginia. This, however, is not to be done until the Commissioners Certify you that an additional Company to the guard on the part of this State is really in their Judgment absolutely necessary, and when you receive such orders you are to raise 50 persons in the same manner as the former, and form them into a Company to be kept in service

so long as it shall appear to the Commissioners necessary. I wish your Commission may prove useful and agreeable,

And am, &c.,
R. CASWELL.
