J. STOKES TO GOV. JOHNSTON.
[From Executive Letter Book.]

Martinville, Feb’y 18th, 1789.

Dr. Sir:

Capt. Binge waits on your Excellency for my Commission as Additional Judge of the District of Morgan. I have been told that the Commission has been sent up, but am not certain, and some persons who have Suits hung up in that court have agreed to send for fear of a Disappointment, I have agreed to serve until the next General Assembly can have an Opportunity of making another Appointment.

I am, &c.,
J. STOKES.
