MAJOR JOHN BOWIL TO HON. WM. BLOUNT.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Long Creek, Nov. 26th, 1785.

Dear Sir:

I am just returned from Ninety-six where I went to enquire after your Waggons, I saw the Gentlemen who are just up from Orangeburg on the Circuit, some of them on the Congaree and Others by the ridge, but none of them saw any such Waggons. The Bearer of this, James Bradley, I expect will be with you on Monday by 12 o'clock, I have promised him you would pay him four dollars for his trouble.

JOHN BOWIL.
