GOV. CASWELL TO COL. W. R. DAVIE.
(From Executive Letter Book.)

Kinston, April 15th, 1787.

Dear Sir:

Some of the deputies who are appointed to attend the proposed Convention at Philadelphia thinking the sum granted for their services may prove inadequate to their expences, especially if their attendance should be longer than first it was apprehended might be necessary, and as they are to acco’t it has been judged proper to grant them warrants for another months allowance. I therefore take the liberty of enclosing you a Warrant for £64 and as Congress have recommended the time of meeting of the deputies in Convention to be on the second Monday in May, I presume it will be unnecessary for the deputies for this State to attend at an earlier day.

I am respectfully, Dr. Sir, Your most obedt. Servt.,
R. CASWELL.
