J. G. & THOMAS BLOUNT TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Washington, March 14th, 1786.

Sir:

The late Governor Martin put into our hands Warrants on the Treasury to enable us to pay in part to Mr. Marbois, a debt due from this State to the Government of Martinique. We have remitted to the Northward the full amount of their Warrants, but are not yet furnished with the acct. of Sales that we cannot inform you what further sums may be necessary to pay the whole debt.

If any further payments are intended to be made we shall be obliged by being furnished with the Money or Warrants as soon as Convenient as the season is fast advancing when Produce cannot be conveniently had even with Money. We have a further reason for Wanting the warrants at this time; which is to secure the money from the County Treasurer's draft; by and by the money may not be had even for Warrants.

We are with much esteem,
Your Excellency's most Obt. Humble Servants,
J. G. & THOMAS BLOUNT.
