Letter from Governor Tryon to Governor Bull.

Brunswick, 16th July 1765.

The general post has just obtained by the assiduity of some gentlemen here a communication thro' this Province, by which opportunity I send you this intelligence. I shall order the post to be carried regularly into Charlestown till I can receive information how far the Province of South Carolina are willing to contribute to an establishment of such public utility. The Legislature of this Province have made some provision to assist the Post Master General in the execution of this plan, As North Carolina takes up the letters from Suffolk in Virginia, it may possibly not be thought inconvenient for South Carolina Province to deliver and receive the mails at Wilmington; this however I leave to your consideration.
