GOV. CASWELL TO CHAS. THOMPSON, ESQ.

Kingston, 21st Jany., 1786.

Sir:

I had the honor to receive your letter of Nov. 9th, 1785, with two copies of the Journals of Congress of last year, bound, which shall be disposed of as you advise. Our Laws are in such a situation, as not to admit the furnishing the copies required by Congress, but as they are about to be revised I flatter myself that as soon as that is completed and the revision printed, copies will be transmitted agreeable to the wishes of Congress.

I have received sundry Acts of the Legislature of South Carolina, but none from Massachusetts, from Connecticut one complete, well bound Copy of all their Laws to 1784, has been received in this State.

I am with great respect Sir,
Your mo. ob. humbl. Servt.,
R. CASWELL.
