GOV. CASWELL TO JOHN LAWRENCE.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

No. Carolina, New Bern, 20th December, 1785.

Sir:

I had the pleasure of receiving a letter from you dated the 16th August 1784, with a neat new bound book, containing Laws of the State of Connecticut, but a few days past. I believe both the letter and Book had been mislaid by one of our Delegates at New York. I am sorry it is not in my power to return the compliment to your State, but as we are about to revise our Laws, flatter myself the State will not omit it when the revision is completed and the Laws published.

I am, Sir, your mo. ob. Servt.,
R. CASWELL.
