GOV. R. CASWELL TO CAPT. JAMES SHINE.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Sir:

There are several horses, which you, as Quarter Master of the New Bern Brigade in Gen. Ashe's expedition to the southward, purchased for the public, now in the hands of individuals, poor and unfit for public use. I do therefore request that you immediately get them together, and after ten days' public notice, sell them at public vendue, and the amount of the sales you are to account with the public for, and so soon as the sales are complete make me or the Commander in Chief a return of such sales.

Given at Newington on the 28th day of August, 1779.

R. CASWELL.
