HUGH WILLIAMSON TO GOV. CASWELL, RESPECTING COMMERCE.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Edenton, 16th June, 1786.

Sir:

Your favor of the 10th inst., came to hand by this day's post. I have ever had the Commercial Interest of this State much at heart, and shall never Shun any Opportunity on which it may seem probable that my services may be of any use to the State. I am obliged to the Council for rating my Abilities perhaps at more than they deserve. My diligence, however, shall be equal to that of my Compatriots. I shall endeavor to attend the meeting of the Commissioners at the time and place appointed, if you are pleased to forward me a warrant with the Commission, I shall try to pass it off to some of the Sheriffs.

I have the honor to be,
With the utmost consideration, Sir,
Your obedient Servant,
HUGH WILLIAMSON.
