PRESD'T SAM. HUNTINGTON TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Philadelphia, Nov. 11th, 1779.

Sir:

Your Excellency will receive herewith enclosed an Act of Congress of this State, requesting that the Governors of Virginia and North Carolina use their utmost exertions to have the whole of the Troops ordered from their respective States sent forward to join Gen'l Lincoln's Army without loss of time, &c. I persuade myself that the pressing Exigency of the case leaves me no room to doubt that all the despatch in your Excellency's power will be given in compliance with this request of Congress.

I have the honor to be, with great respect,
Your Excellency's huml. Serv't,
SAM. HUNTINGTON, Presd't.
Gov. Caswell.
