[From Executive Letter Book.]

Martin County, December 23d, 1779.

Honored Sir:

Enclosed I do myself the honor of transmitting your Excellency an accurate Roll of the Drafts and Volunteers raised in this County, for the said Expedition, which I could not obtain when I wrote you last; also my Bond for the faithful application of two thousand one hundred pounds, received of the Sheriff of the County by virtue of your draft on the Treasury. I can assure you, Sir, every effort has been used to hasten on the March of our Men.

I have the honor to be, with the highest esteem,
Your Mo. ob. Serv't,
Gov. Caswell.
