FROM JAMES TATE TO GOV. CASWELL.

Kingston, May 20th, 1786.

Sir:—

Being a sufferer in the common calamity of Wilmington to the amount of £1,000, and not being able to rebuild my house, I come to wait upon your Excellency to request your favorable interest with the Council to grant me an order upon the treasury, if it can be admitted, for the payment of a certain sum due me, which Capt. Child can shew to your Excellency, the ticket for which I lost in the conflagration. For which favor, sir, I shall ever retain a most grateful sense, and remain,

Your Excellency’s most obliged humble servant,
JAMES TATE.
