Philadelphia, Treasury Office, Dec'r 7th, 1779.

Sir:

I have the honor of enclosing your Excellency, by direction of the Board of Treasury, an Extract from the Journal of Congress of the 7th of October last. As it is essential to the public Service and the business of the Treasury that the Treasurers of the respective States should be punctual in making their monthly returns, the Board requests that your Excellency will be pleased to take the necessary measures for this purpose. The Board further requests your Excellency to direct the Treasurer of your State to transmit as soon as possible a return of the money he has now in office.

I have the honor to be, with respect,
Your Excellency's Mo. ob. huml. Serv't,
ROBT. TROUP, Secry.
Gov. Caswell.
