J. G. & THOS. BLOUNT TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Washington, July 2nd, 1785.

Sir:

The late Gov. Martin put into our hands Warrants for 1,100 dollars, with a promise of further sums—when the funds in the hands of the Collectors would afford it—to pay a sum due from this state to the Government of Martinique, and now to be paid Mr. Marbois at Philadelphia.

We are now loading a vessel with Naval stores at Wilmington, purchased with the warrants we received, and are short of her load. The bearer now waits on you for warrants for such further sums as you may please to draw to accomplish that payment.

We are with much respect,
Your Excellency's mo. ob. humb. servts.,
J. G. & THOS. BLOUNT.
