Letter from Governor Tryon to Samuel Wyley, Esq, at Charles

Brunswick 5th April 1766

The original of the inclosed copy of a letter from the Lords Commissioners for Trade and Plantations I received the 14th March last, As this colony has provided no provincial funds applicable to the contingent services of government in general, I shall be under the necessity of applying to the General Assembly for the payment of the moiety of your charge, as recommended by their Lordships, I esteem it necessary you should furnish me with the particulars of your charges, the Journal of your survey together with the plan of the tract of land set out for the Catawba Indians in order that I may be able to lay them before the next General Assembly at the same time that I recommend the payment of the moiety of your demand

I am Sir &c
