GOV. R. CASWELL TO HON. ROBERT BURTON, ESQUIRE.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Fayetteville, December 20th, 1786.

Sir:

I am requested by the General Assembly to direct you to proceed on immediately to New York to take your seat in Congress.

This I flatter myself you will readily attend to when I inform you that the Death of Mr. Nash and the return of Mr. Bloodworth leaves us unrepresented, Mr. Blount being the only Member now attending from this State.

I have the Honor to be
With great respect Sir,
Your most obed. Servt.,
R. CASWELL.
