GOV. CASWELL TO THE HON’BLE JAMES WHITE.

Kinston, June 4th, 1787.

Sir:

I am honored with yours of the first Inst. and thank you for the perusal of your dispatches for Genl. Knox, they shall be closed and sent to the post office, with some dispatches I have for Congress, in a day or two.

The Warrant you required at Fayetteville I made out there & enclosed to you under the care of Colo. Rowan, but least you should not receive it, I now send you one of the same Tenor, date and no., with a note at foot directing the Treasurer to take up one only.

I also enclose herewith a Warrant for 8 months allowance towards your next year’s service, this is agreeable to a late Act of Assembly which directs the payment to be made at least two months before the service commences.

I have the Honor to be, very respectfully Sir,
Your most obedt. Servant,
RICHARD CASWELL.
