GOV. R. CASWELL TO JNO. WALKER, ESQR.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Kingston, September 17th, 1786.

Dear Sir:

Your letter enclosing a Petition of the Inhabitants of Wilmington, requesting a Court of Oyer to be held there, did not reach me until the 10th Inst., when I summoned the Council in order to obtain the advice of the Board; and in consequence of such advice I have issued and herewith forward the Commission. Tho' I am apprehensive it will not be executed, as I presume all the Judges are now on the Council. However, I have given all the dispatch to this business which has been in my power, and shall always be happy in attending to any matters which you shall recommend.

I am with great esteem, Dear Sir,
Your most obedient Servant,
R. CASWELL.
