[From Tryon's Letter Book.]
Letter from Governor Tryon to William Bull, Esq

Wilmington 22d April 1765

Mr Maurice Moore; one of the Associate Judges of this Province, informed me that in compliance of the late Governor Dobbs' instructions to him to enquire into the conduct of Mr McClenaghan, relative to Mr Hamilton's deposition inclosed in your letter of 13h February last to his late Excellency, he had conversed with Mr McClenaghan on the subject, who acknowledged to have delivered the precept mentioned in Mr Hamilton's deposition, but says he was not sensible that the deponent lived beyond the southward boundary line of this province; if this acknowledgement does not give satisfaction to the party, I hope he will obtain relief in a course of law; as I shall never give countenance to such unwarrantable proceedings as complained of

I have the Honor &ca
