Hillsboro', 21 April, 1784.

Dear Son:

This acknowledges the rect. of yours by Capt. Craddock by whom this will be returned to you. I will Attend to what you request,

-------------------- page 136 --------------------
there is not anything Material here, the Cincinnati make some Noise principally owing to a piece written 'tis say'd by Mr. Burke one of the Judges in So. Carolina in opposition to the Order Suggesting it will be establishing a Peerage in each Member & his Posterity, &c.

The General Assembly formed Monday last. Mr. Benbury & myself are Speakers; much work is cut out, but little entered upon. Clamours seem to prevail agst. the present executive, who will succeed (I cannot guess) to that appointment, but I incline to think 'twill not be continued in the same person. A Gentn. from E—n will I presume be a Candidate and I don't know but one with whom you are better acquainted may also, but this is not yet settled.

My love attends you & yours.
Yours affecte.,
B. G. Caswell.
