[From Executive Letter Book.]

Camp, Fort Caswell, 7th June, 1779.

The commanding officer of the State Regiment is required to discharge the Militia men under his command, so soon as they have respectively served three months, and give me the earliest intelligence of such discharge that their places may be supplied. He is also required to call upon the commanding officers of the respective Militia Regiments in the District of New Bern to furnish the men lately drafted. He will furnish a Guard of a commanding officer and twelve men at least to convey the Prisoners taken by Capt. Gaskill to Smithfield, in Johnston County, and to send them to that place as soon as practicable. The officer is to call on me or Col. Leech for orders in this particular.
