North Carolina Gazette, July 10, 1778.

State of North Carolina.

By his Excellency Richard Caswell, Esquire, Governor, Captain
General, and Commander in Chief of the said State.


Whereas it is absolutely necessary, for the service of the State, that the General Assembly should meet at a shorter Day than that to which it now stands adjourned, I have therefore thought fit, by and with the advice of the Council of State, to issue this my Proclamation, hereby requiring the Members of the General Assembly of the said State to meet at the town of Hillsborongh on Monday the third Day of August next, then and there to consult on the weighty and arduous Affairs of the said State.

Given at Kingston, under my Hand and Seal at Arms, the 4th Day of July, in the third year of our Independence, Anno Domini 1778.

By his Excellency's command,
J. Glasgow, Sec.
God save the State.
