FROM WILLIAM BLOUNT TO GOV. CASWELL.

Piney Grove, July 8th, 1786.

Sir:—

I intend to perform a tour of duty of eight months in Congress the ensuing year, provided I have assurance that my salary shall be regularly paid me in hard money, at the places where Congress sits, agreeable (I believe) to a resolution of the General Assembly passed in the Spring Session of 1784. If this cannot be done, and warrants are sent me by the bearer, Reading Blount, I shall endeavor to convert the paper into hard cash at the least possible loss. I have the honor to be,

Your Excellency’s most obedient servant,
WILLIAM BLOUNT.
His Excellency Richard Caswell, Esq.
