Letter from Mr Reed to the Secretary.

Newbern Septr 12th 1773 [1772]

Reverend Sir,

Nothing material has happened since my last of the 17th of March. The Assembly which was appointed to meet last May was prorogued till the 12th of October, and very probably will be further prorogued till about Christmas when the present Vestry Act will be fully expired, and must of course come upon the Anvil, a permanent one will be warmly recommended, and if it should miscarry I shall have very little hopes of ever seeing the Church of England established in this province.

I have sent my Natitia Parochialis as usual and am with the utmost gratitude and regard,

Yours &c
