GEN. ALEX'R LILLINGTON TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Nov. 15th, 1779.

Please your Excellency.
Sir:

I rec'd your favor with the Commissions by Mr. Jones, the Express, and you may assure yourself that I shall do everything that is in my power to forward on the Troops by the time you ordered if the Colonels will do their duty.

As I expect before this your Excellency has rec'd my letter in answer to your first, I have nothing further to add,

But remain, Sir,
Your Excellency's Mo. ob. huml. Serv't,
ALEX. LILLINGTON.
Gov. Caswell.
