GOV. CASWELL TO THE COMMISSIONERS APPOINTED BY CONGRESS TO TREAT WITH THE SOUTHERN INDIANS.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

North Carolina, Kinston,
4th. Sept., 1785.

Gentlemen:

I have the honor to enclose you a Duplicate of a Letter addressed you the 23d. July since which I have not been favored with any of your Commands.

Col. William Blount the Agent appointed to attend the treaties in behalf of this State will deliver you this and is able to give you any information respecting the State of affairs here. To him I beg leave to refer you.

I hope to be able to answer your Drafts by the time mentioned in my former, but it will be with great difficulty and trouble that the money can be obtained.

I wish you great success in your negotiation with the Indians and am with great regard and esteem Gentlemen,

Your mo. obedt. and very humble Servt.
R. CASWELL.
