Sir:

Your Excellency will receive enclosed a Letter from the Board of Treasury recommending me as a purchaser of a Quantity of Tobacco

-------------------- page 557 --------------------
belonging to the State of North Carolina. I have therefore empowered the Bearer, Mr. Daniel Carthy, to enter into a Contract with your Excellency, or such person as you may appoint for the purpose, provided the Tobacco can be procured on such Terms as to make it a secure object for me.

As Mr. Carthy is vested with formal powers for Compleating and Carrying into Execution this Contract it is unnecessary for me to make any further remarks on the subject.

I am, &c.,
ROYAL FLINT.
