Letter from Andrew Miller to Thomas Burke.

Halifax May 19th 1774.

Dear Sir,

I received yours of the 11th Inst: The Governor has been here 10 days, tomorrow I accompany him and Mr Neilson to Bute. The Office will not be opened till Novr or December next and then in Bute—he says he has appointed some time in July for a Court of Chancery, but when I hear more certainly about it shall write you. A Brother of Mr. Millners is Just arrived. I have told him of our Bargain and as I wish his Legacy to be paid in preference to any other have proposed that he should make the Deed, and take your Bond, but he has some Scruples, and thinks he could purchase his Uncles right for a small sum. I shall talk further with him and write you again.

I am Dear Sir
Your Hume Servt
