FROM ROBERT ELLIS TO GOV. CASWELL.

Wilmington, January 18th, 1780.

Sir:—

The money being all expended which I received to furnish provisions for the use of Fort Johnston and a further supply being necessary, have sent in a bond, signed by Mr. Toomer and myself, for five thousand pounds currency. Request your Excellency will please to send a warrant for that sum.

Mr. Smith, first lieutenant at Fort Johnston, has resigned.

I am, with great respect,
Your Excellency’s humble servant,
ROBERT ELLIS.
To his Excellency, Richard Caswell, Esq.
