COL. POLK REQUESTING A WARRANT FROM GOVERNOR CASWELL.
(From Executive Letter Book.)

May it please your Excellency:

On my receiving a Commission from you to attend Congress in November next it put me in mind I should stand in need of hard money, And I find it is not easy to be got. The law in South Carolina being stopt for some time puts it out of my Power to recover Money in that State & being so far from the said Board I Cannot have any Remittances made that way. I must therefore call on your Excellency, if Consistent with the duty of your Office at so early an hour, to send me a warrant for the Sum allotted me for that Service by Major John Nelson who will return by Hillsborough, and will be able to inform me when to send to the Treasurer for the Contents of the Warrant. I am with Respect,

Your Excellency’s Obedt. Servt.,
THOS. POLK.

Charlotte, 3rd April, 1787.
