GOV. CASWELL TO MR. HENRY TOOMER.
(From Executive Letter Book.)

Kinston, 25th June, 1787.

Sir:

Your favor of the 20th Cr. I have received with its enclosures. Mr. Blount’s price as fixed for the Tea is so much higher than that you intimate which may be obtained that I cannot, at present, say what may be best to be done with it. I presume it may bring a greater price elsewhere and as Mr. Blount is positive in his prices I do not think myself at liberty to authorize you to deviate from them until I make some inquiry as to the prices in other parts; in the meantime if the Tea will bring the lower price he sets, I hope you will sell it.

I am very respectfully, Sir,
Your most Obed. Servant,
R. CASWELL.
