GOV. CASWELL TO RD. DOBBS SPAIGHT, ESQUIRE.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Kinston, 16th Augt., 1785.

Sir:

I had the honor to receive your Letter of the 10th Current, resigning your appointment as a Delegate to Congress for the residue of the present year, and also declining to accept the appointment to that office by the General Assembly to take place the first Monday in November next.

Your resignation I accept Sir, but I confess 'tis with much reluctance, as I fear the State will not be represented in Congress until November when I should be happy in your returning to Congress,

which perhaps you may find it more convenient to do than you at present apprehend.

With great respect and esteem I am Sir,
Your most obedient and very humble servt.,
RD. CASWELL.
