REV. THOS. TATE TO GOV. CASWELL.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Wilmington, June 3d, 1779.

Sir:

Being formerly, by the recommendation of some Gentlemen of this Town to the late Genl. Moore, appointed a chaplain to the first Regiment of Troops in this province, the 14th of August, 1775, in which station I continued until the month of June, 1778, when I was returned home amongst the Supernumerary officers, I would, therefore, humbly request the favor of your Excellency's appointment to a second Brigade, should there be one raised in this State, for which favor I shall remain,

Your Excellency's grateful, humle. Servt.,
THOMAS TATE, Chap.
