JOHN MINGTON TO GOV. ABNER NASH.

June 8th, 1780.

Sir:

I have the Honour of inclosing to Your Excellency the Resignation of Mr. George Hooper, Clerk of the Superior Court for the District of Wilmington, and also the appointment of my self by the Judges to the Clerkship of the said Court; the Judges have directed, Sir, that I should make application to you for a Commission; I therefore request you to inclose one for me to my Father. I would have done myself the honour of waiting upon your Excellency in Person, but the necessity of attending General Caswell according to his orders in a few days puts it totally out of my Power.

I have the Honour to be,
With the greatest Esteem,
Your Excellency's most obedient Servt.,
JOHN MINGTON.
