Letter from Andrew Miller to Thomas Burke.

Halifax June 20th 1774

I have but just now Received yours of the 30th ult. The Governor and Mr Findley I fancy fixed on Bute, as being the nearest place to Newbern that is reputed healthy, however neither have made any purchase yet and youl see the Governor in July at the Court of Chancery. Mr Millners brother is still here. I have found him so Obstinately determined to follow his own opinion and that of Col Montfort, that I have dropt giving him any advice at all—he has wrote to his Uncle to get a power or a Deed from him, by which Ime afraid he will lose the whole—as however willing the Legatees may be to give up their claims in his favour, they may not be so generous to the Uncle—however I leave him now to his own will—Ime much obliged to you for the Invitation to Mrs Miller & self, but am afraid it will be out of our power to accept of it. I expect a good deal of the Governors Company this Summer at Halifax, and to have something to do for him and Mr Finlay as preparation for their Settlement in Bute—Indeed I am not sure but that some others of the Governors family may be here—make our most Respectful Compliments to Mrs Burke and believe me to be

Dear Sir, Your Humbl Servt
