HON. CHAS. THOMSON TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Office of Secretary of Congress, June 9th, 1785.

Sir:

I have the honor of transmitting to your Excellency an Act of the United States in Congress assembled for the relief of the officers and Soldiers and Seamen, who have been disabled in the service of the United States during the late War. As the condition of many of these unfortunate men, who have a claim not merely on the humanity, but on the gratitude and justice of their Country demands immediate attention, I have the firmest confidence that the State of North Carolina will take the earliest opportunity of making the provision recommended in the enclosed act.

With the greatest respect I have the honor to be,
Your Excellency's mo. ob. humbl. Servt.,
CHAS. THOMSON.
