PRESD'T STEP. HOPKINS TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Hartford, 28th Oct., 1779.

Sir:

I have the honor to enclose to you the Resolutions entered into by a Convention of Commissioners from the States of New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut and New York.

The great distance of North Carolina, South Carolina & Georgia prevented the Convention from requesting the States to send Commissioners to meet at Philadelphia, but it is our earnest wish that our fellow Citizens to the Southward, if they think the measures we are pursuing expedient and salutary, would adopt a similar conduct, that, as our interest is common, our exertions might be uniform.

STEP. HOPKINS, Presd't.
Gov. Caswell.
