Revd Sir:

Your favor of Nov 6, 1763, I Recd t'other day, it would have mortified me much to have incurred the displeasure of the venbl Society for being so free with Govr Dobbs, his character, had I been the only one in the Province that had a most contemptible opinion both of his morals & politics, as far as I can learn the news of his death were received with the greatest joy throughout the Province.
