[From North Carolina Letter Book of S. P. G.]

The Petition & Representation of John Boyd to the Society for the propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts.


That your petitioner hath lived for some time in North Carolina & is well acquainted with the Country & there is no minister residing of the Church of England in any part of that Government, for want of which many of the people are drawn away by Presbyterian anabaptists or other Dissenting Teachers, many of their children unbaptised & the administration of the Sacrament of the Lords Supper wholly neglected.
