Letter from Enoch Ward to the North Carolina Council of Safety.

Beaufort ye 9th Augst, 1776.

I shall be glad to know from your Honble Board what provision hath been made for quartering Troops, or how far I may give encouragement to the owner of the house for makeing him pay.

I am Your Obedt Humble Servt
