GOV. CASWELL TO HON. JOSEPH McDOWELL AND JOHN NELSON.
(From Executive Letter Book.)

Kinston, March 15th, 1787.

Sir:

Business of importance to the State requiring a meeting of the Council I have appointed such meeting to be at this place on Thursday the 12th of April next, when I flatter myself all the Members will attend, as the business is of such consequence as to require a full Board; indeed four members were Convened yesterday at New Bern who declined entering upon the Consideration of the same recommending that I should summon all the Members to meet at the Time and place first mentioned.

Under these Considerations, Sir, I have the most sanguine expectation that you will attend and take your seat at the Board.

I have the Honor to be, with great respect and esteem Sir,
Your most obedt. Servant,
R. CASWELL.
