GOV. CASWELL TO JAMES COOR, ESQR.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Kingston, April 19th, 1786.

Sir:

Your Letter of the 16th Current I have before me; also, your return of Entries and Clearances from November to the 15th of this month. I observed the vessel you alluded to was cleared the 26th of January, which was before the first proclamation, prohibiting the the exportation of Grain was issued, or even advised by the Council to be issued. I therefore see no impropriety in your delivering Capt. Turner his papers, but rather think it your duty so to do. If the vessel has been an unusual time in port, the greater will be the disadvantage to the owner.

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