COL. MATTH. BRICKELL TO GOVERNOR CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Hertford Co., April 3rd, 1779.

Sir:

Agreeable to your Excellency's instructions, I called a General Muster of the Regiment of this County on the 23rd of March, when three volunteers turned out, the other seventeen was drafted, a list of which is enclosed. I have paid each and every man his Bounty, and furnished every thing necessary for their march, arms excepted, which is not to be had in this County, they being before carried into the service, so that there is not one left fit for that purpose.

I am, with all due respect,
Your Excellency's Mo. ob. humb. Serv't.,
MATTH. BRICKELL.
