Haw River 13th May 1771.

The Chief Justice and the two Associates.

As I have already several prisoners and it is highly probable that in a few days I shall have many more I have thought proper by and with the advice and consent of his Majestys Council to appoint a Court of Oyer and Terminer to be held at Hillsborough on the 30th of this instant May at which place and time I require the attendance of every one and expect that without any delay or excuse you do not fail. The Superior Courts that interfere must not be held at present.
