THOMAS SHERROD TO GOVERNOR CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Franklin County, March 22d, 1779.

Sir:

This will inform you that the light horse men from this County are properly equipped with guns and Horses. I have also furnished thirty-three able-bodied foot Recruits, which was required from said County in proportion. I have also furnished the men with their Bounties, viz.: Every volunteer three hundred Dollars and every drafted one hundred and fifty dollars cash. I should have been down with the men according to request, but the River and creeks have been so full that they were not passable in several days, therefore I hope your Excellency will excuse

Your most obedient and humble servant, &c.,
THOMAS SHERROD.
