HON. R. D. SPAIGHT TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

New Bern, 10th Aug., 1785.

Sir:

Having performed my Tour of duty as a Delegate to Congress for the present year agreeable to the Resolves of the General Assembly, and no further duty being required of me I beg leave to resign by appointment for the residue of the year.

I have also to inform your Excellency that my private business having been long neglected demands my immediate attention, and obliges me to decline the honor which the Assembly have done me, by appointing me one of their Delegates to Congress from the first Monday in November next.

I have the honor to be your Excellency's
Most obedient and humble Servant,
RICHD. DOBBS SPAIGHT.
