GOV. CASWELL TO THE HONBLES. JOS. LEECH, FRED HARGET, JOSEPH GREEN, JOHN HAWKS AND THOMAS BROWN, ESQUIRES.
(From Executive Letter Book.)


Kinston, March 5th, 1787.

(Circular.)

Dear Sir:

Mr. Willie Jones has declined going to Philadelphia as a deputy for this State at the proposed Convention in May next, and I do not know if it will be advisable for me to go on that business. I therefore propose a meeting of the Council at New Bern on Monday, the 12th of March, Instant, when you will be pleased to attend to deliberate on this and other business; the more I consider the object the Assembly had in view, the more I am convinced of the necessity & propriety of our having a full representation in the Convention and therefore wish, if possible, you will be punctual in attending the Council.

I have the Honor to be, with great respect & esteem, Dr. Sir,
Your most obed. Servt.,
RICHARD CASWELL.
