Mr. Fiske to Governor Tryon.

Pasquotank 28th Novr 1768.

For your great benevolence towards me hitherto, I am infinitely obliged and doubt not a continuance of the same kindnesses while I merit them which I shall never voluntarily neglect.—My situation here in respect to my Salary is very doubtful as the persons of whom the vestry is composed have not, nor will, qualify on purpose to prevent my receiving that, which the Law and the rest of my Parishioners with your Excellency's concurrence proposed for me.

Yours &c.
