Letter from William Blount to Richard Caswell

Volume 18, Page 674

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

Piney Grove, July 8th, 1786.

Sir:

I intend to perform a Tour of Duty of eight Months in Congress the ensuing year, provided I have assurance that my salary shall be regularly paid me in hard money at the place where Congress sits, agreeable (I believe) to a resolution of the General Assembly passed in the Spring Session of 1784. If this cannot be done and warrants are sent me by the bearer, Reading Blount, I shall endeavor to convert the paper into hard Cash at the least possible loss.

I have the Honor to be,
Your Excellency's
Most Obdt. Servt.,
WM. BLOUNT.
