MR. WILLIAM R. DAVIE TO GOV. CASWELL.
(From Executive Letter Book.)

Philadelphia, June 19th, 1787.

Sir:

By the last Mail we had the honor of addressing your Excellency on the subject of issuing warrants for a future allowance, as the time

-------------------- page 726 --------------------
of our Service here appeared every day less certain. Should your Excellency be disposed to issue the warrants I have taken the liberty to trouble Mr. Haywood with the Negotiations as I only wish the Money ready, should I be obliged to borrow here, to enable me to repay with Punctuality. We move slowly in our business, it is indeed a work of great delicacy & difficulty; impeded every step by jealousies and interest.

I have the Honor to be, with great respect,
Your Most Obedt. Servt.,
WILLIAM R. DAVIE.
