GOV. CASWELL TO COL. TIPTON WASHINGTON.
(From Executive Letter Book.)

Kinston, 27th February, 1787.

Sir:

Having occasion to send to Holston to try to collect some Money due to me there I have delayed sending out the Proclamation for removing the Inhabitants of the Indian Land & others, that they might go safe by the person I might find. My son Winston now goes on this business. He carries a packet for the Sheriff of your County & Commissions for 16 Lieuts. and as many Ensigns of the Militia of your Regiment to be delivered to you. The Laws are not yet printed that I know of or they should now be forwarded. I shall be glad to hear from you on all occasions and particularly respecting the disposition of the people in general respecting their Return to the Laws & Government of North Carolina.

Any Civilities you may be pleased to shew my son shall be Greatly acknowledged by Sir,

Your most Obedient Servt.,
R. CASWELL.
