Whereas it hath pleased his Excellency Richard Caswell Esq. Governor, &c. of this State, to order a Court of Enquiry to be held by the continental Officers under my Command, to take into Consideration the Petition of sundry Persons, who are or were Soldiers in the continental Army raised in this State, and suggest they have served the Time for which they were inlisted, and from whom Discharges are withheld: Therefore I hereby desire all Officers now within this State, that are on the continental Establishment, to meet me at New Bern the 7th of January next, to hold the aforementioned Court; at which place all those who think they are entitled to Discharges, are also desired to attend.
