GOV. CASWELL TO HON. WM. CUMMING.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

New Bern, 30th December, 1785.

Dear Sir:

As it is my intention to leave Town early Tomorrow morning, lest you should not have it in your power to obtain with convenience warrants on the Treasury so soon as it may be in your power to proceed to Congress, I take the liberty of enclosing a warrant for £256, a sum equal to that drawn by Mr. Blount, and also by Mr. Bloodworth; further, I think myself not at liberty to go at present. Your further Drafts shall in due time be forwarded to your order) and any commands you think necessary to honor me with shall meet with my attention.

I have the honor to be, &c.,
R. CASWELL.
