COL. JAMES KENAN TO GOVERNOR CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]


Duplin, March 16th, 1780.

Sir:

According to promise, I am to inform your Excellency that I am to go with the Militia to So. Carolina. I did not attend the draft at Wilmington for the Major, nor have I yet heard who was drafted from this district. I shall be much obliged to you to inform me who is Lieut. Col., and when you think the Militia from New Bern District will march; my men from this County will march with them to Cross Creek. If you have any new orders for me, you'l please to send them by the bearer hereof.

I have the honor to be,
Your Excellency's mo. ob. humbl. Servt.,
JAS. KENAN.
Gov. Caswell.

P. S. Please to let me know what General goes.
