Newbern the 8th October 1770.

The honble Alexander McCulloch Esquire,

The reports that have been made to me by Mr Henderson Associate Judge, and the Inhabitants of Hillsborough Town, relative to the injuries done at the last Hillsborough Superior Court by the Insurgents oblige me to summon the Gentlemen of His Majesty's Council to meet me at Newbern on Thursday the 16th instant, to consult on the proper measures to be taken on the present melancholy exigency of Public affairs in Orange County. I trust therefore nothing will prevent my having the pleasure of seeing you at the Council Board at the above mentioned time.

As I have required Mr Attorney's attendance as absolutely necessary, I guess you will travel in together.
