Letter from Andrew Miller to Thomas Burke.

Halifax Novr 20 1772

Dear Sir,

I am much obliged to you for your favr of the 15th Inst: Doctr Skinner & the two Seconds were acquitted by the Call or Examining Court, no Evidence appearing against them. I'me sorry you had any

more Wrecks on the way—tho' I'me glad you have got to the end of Journey without either receiving any hurt. I believe you when you say, suppose you'l come to Halifax in the end—we are very apt to believe what we wish may happen. That Cursed money occasions a great deal of uneasiness in the world—should Doctr Burke have occasion for £200 I think I could let him have it without Injury to the Company or myself.

Mrs Miller when at the marsh settled with Miss McCulloch & Harry Montfort upon a Jaunt to Edenton & Perquimans—they have been gone a fortnight I expect them home in a few days, she is now confirmed of her Pregnancy, which made a great deal of Alteration in her Spirits, before she went from here.

Col Montfort is very Ill. I question much if he Survives this winter. The Post is waiting I have only time to desire Compliments to Mrs Burke, and am Dear Sir

Your Humble Servt
