North Carolina

Orange County

This day personally appeared before me one of His Majesty's Justices of the Peace for the County aforesaid, Josiah Lyon, and made oath on the Holy Evangelists of Almighty God that on Tuesday the 25th of this instant in Hillsborough he the said Josiah Lyon heard a number of people who were assembled together, assuming to themselves the Title of Regulators, and committing the most unheard of Acts of violence and riot, drunk damnation to King George (thereby meaning as he apprehended the King of England) and success to the Pretender.

Sworn before me the 30th of September 1770.
