FROM JOHN SITGREAVES TO GOV. CASWELL.

New Bern, 1st September, 1778.

Sir:—

I take this, the earliest opportunity, of transmitting your Excellency the papers I was to bring down from Hillsborough. Am extremely sorry it was out of my power to call by Kinston with them as I came down, being very much indisposed. I believe all the papers are here except a letter from Governor Henry to your Excellency respecting the naval officers of this State, which was delivered to a committee appointed to inquire into the conduct of the naval officers who never reported. I know the member it was delivered to, and shall take care to get it of him next Assembly.

I am, with all respect,
Your Excellency’s most obedient humble servant,
J. SITGREAVES.
His Excellency the Governor.
