GOV. CASWELL FROM A. HODGE, PUBLIC PRINTER, WITH HIS ACCOUNT.
(From Executive Letter Book.)


New Bern, August 2d, 1787.

Sir:

By Mr. Stringer I forward the Circular Letters and accounts you Ordered printed; which I hope will arrive in due season. Owing to the want of a proper quantity of figures in our office I found it impossible to have them done before, or in any other form than they are.

I cannot conceive that they come within the denomination of State Business. Indeed I think I may in justness Complain of its heaviness already, which by the Depreciation of the Money I much fear will cause me to be involved in debt this year.

Enclosed I send your Account for printing, & I would esteem it a particular favour if you could remit the amount, or part of it, by Mr. Stringer as we are at present much necessitated.

In haste, I remain,
Your Excellency’s Humble Servt.,
A. HODGE.
