GOV. CASWELL FROM JOSEPH LEECH, JUDGE OF THE MARITIME COURT.

New Bern, August 25th, 1787.

Sir:

I found that the keeping the Commission of Judge of the Court Maritime and Mercantile interfered so much with my own private business, that I could not without great inconvenience give that constant attendance to the duty that it required. Therefore hope your Excellency will accept of my resignation, and if your Excellency think proper, to nominate or appoint some other to fill up the vacancy.

I am with greatest respect,
Your Excellency’s most Obedt. Servant,
JOSEPH LEECH.
