PRESIDENT SAM'L HUNTINGTON TO GOVERNOR CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Philadelphia, Dec'r 15th, 1779.

Sir:

Your Excellency will receive herewith enclosed an Act of Congress of this day, recommending to the several States to continue embargoes where already laid, and where not, to lay embargoes to prohibit until the First day of April next the exportation of the several Articles mentioned and described in the resolution of Congress of the 21st of August last.

The necessity of this measure is so obvious, it is the desire and full expectation of Congress that every State in the Union yield a ready and punctual compliance with the recommendation without loss of time.

I have the honor to be, with the highest respect,
Your Excelly's huml. Serv't,
SAM. HUNTINGTON, President.
Gov. Caswell.
