[B. P. R. O. Am: & W. Ind: No. 592.]

My Lord,

Mr Cole whose head of hair your Grace is perfectly acquainted with is the occasion of my troubling you with this. He has been informed that Captain Burrington Governor of North Carolina is to be recalled and is very desirous that your Grace would be so kind as to recommend him to be his successor. Indeed my Lord it would be an Act of great good nature and charity, and I doubt not but he will behave himself entirely to your Graces Satisfaction, if my recommendation has any weight with your Grace I shall esteem myself happy and own my obligation; there being nobody with greater truth and respect, My Lord

Your Graces most humble and most obedient servant
