ELIAS HOELL TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Beaufort County Washington, Sept 30th, 1777.

Sir:—

Enclosed, I present your Excellency with the Ensign's Commission which I obtained when the Convention sat last at Newbern, and which I should have thought myself highly honored still to have retained, had it not been for particular reasons, which renders it highly impracticable for me to continue, especially at this time in the service of the United States. But your Excellency may depend on the most implicit obedience whenever the safety of the States shall demand it.

I am and will ever continue a sincere friend to the States, as well as your Excellency's most obedt Humle Servt.,

ELIAS HOELL.
