GOV. CASWELL TO ANTHONY BLEDSOE AND JAS. ROBERTSON, ESQRS., OR EITHER OF THEM, CUMBERLAND RIVER.
(From Executive Letter Book.)

Kinston, 27th February, 1787.

Gentlemen:

My son Winstom being about to set out for Holston where he has some business to transact for me I take the Liberty, by him, of enclosing herewith a Copy of or rather a Duplicate of the Letter I have written and transmitted a few days past to the post office for Mr. McGillvary, the Creek Indian Intendant, which I hope will be agreeable to you; this Duplicate you will be pleased to seal and forward to him by any safe conveyance from your Country as ’tis possible the original may not reach him.

Major Evans will, I expect, by the first of April be with his men at the lower end of Clinch & he supposes in the course of that & the next month to be able to cut through to your Settlements, this I shall be happy in knowing he is able to effect.

I have nothing particular to communicate to you at this Juncture, the Laws and Journals are not yet presented, or at least I am not informed that they are or I would endeavor to forward them to you.

I hope you will on all occasions give me as early information in case of any outrages being committed by your perfidious Enemies as you possibly can & particularly state the facts, & any other information you shall favor me with will always be acceptable, and you may rely on receiving every information I think worth Communicating & also all the assistance in my power in support of your settlement & Political Government. Gentlemen, I wish you health and happiness and am very respectfully,

Your most Obedient Servant,
R. CASWELL.
