Marmaduke Jones Esquire.

On the 30th of this Instant May I have appointed a Court of Oyer and Terminer to be held at Hillsborough for the Tryal of the Insurgents at which time it will give me much satisfaction to see you and have your assistance in the prosecutions for the Crown; from the assurances you have given me I shall rest in full confidence of seeing you at the time appointed.
