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

New York, December 7th, 1786.

Sir:

On Saturday the 2nd of Sept., departed this life at 4 O'Clock in the afternoon, my worthy Colleague Mr. Abner Nash; his death is here much Lamented and I sincerely condole with his friends and Country the loss of so Valuable a Member.

The enclosed paper will show the Respect that has here been paid him in his burial.

I am at present the only Delegate from North Carolina. As yet there is no Congress formed but there would have been one three weeks since if Mr. Nash could have attended.

The Commotions in Massachusetts daily become more alarming.

I have the honor to be,
Your Excellency's
Most Obedient Servant,
WM. BLOUNT.
