Wittock, 16th June, 1777.

Dear Sir:—

I have been prevented from waiting on your Excellency (by accident) on my way Northward, and am informed your stay will be short in New Bern, and am afraid shall be deprived the pleasure of seeing you. I therefore shall be glad to bear any commands you may have, if you will please to leave at Mr. Cogdell's; also shall be glad to be informed how I am to be supplied with money, for the pay of the 9th Regiment. I expect to be on my march in 8 days.

I am, dear Sir. with much respect,
Your obd't. hble serv't.,
His Excellency Richard Caswell.

P. S. I wrote yr. Excellency some time ago, when you was in the country, requesting that Ste. Lee might be admitted a pupil under the tuition of Mr. Sprott.
