BEVERLY RANDOLPH TO HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR OF NORTH CAROLINA.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Richmond, January 17th, 1788.

Sir:

I do myself the honor to enclose a copy of a Resolution of the General Assembly of Virginia concerning the boundary Line between the two States, together with an Act for cutting a navigable Canal from the Waters of Elizabeth River in this State, to the Waters of Pasquotank River, in the State of North Carolina. The importance of the objects of these papers will readily suggest to your Excellency the necessity of submitting them as early as possible to the Legislature of your State.

I am with great Respect,
Your Excellency’s Most obedt. Humble Servt.,
BEVERLY RANDOLPH.
