GOV. CASWELL TO THE HON’BLE THE DELEGATES IN CONGRESS FOR THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA.
(From Executive Letter Book.)

No. Carolina, July 18th, 1787.

Gentlemen:

I have the honor to enclose you Copy of my Letter of the 15th January Last, respecting the obtaining muster Rolls of the Continental Line of this State, or authenticated Copies of them. By my not receiving them the business of the Comr. has been wholly retarded. I must therefore request you will be pleased to procure them and forward to me with the utmost dispatch that they may be laid before the Commissioners, indeed they may be useful in the examination of matters relative to the Conduct of some of our friends in Caswell, viz.: Thomas Donoho, Charles Dixon & William Sanders, who are bound to appear at Hillsboro’ Superior Court next, and who have received very considerable sums from the Treasury under various names which are suggested not to be in the Muster Rolls.

I have the Honor to be, with the greatest Respect & Esteem, Gentlemen,
Your most obedient and very humble Servant,
R. CASWELL.
